This is a good answer for the experts who were insisting on the point "Fabless or fab-lite companies aint making good money" It would be great to have a comparison top 10 list about IC foundries who are indeed the real winners of the game. Anyone can give a hand on that?

It is clear from the list above that product innovation & IP is still largely in the US-based companies. Does any one know of any China- or India-based fabless companies that has the potential to get on this list? Seems to me that all of the US-based companies in the list above are poised to do well in 2011. Dr. MP Divakar
