@docdivakar-I landed on this post looking for exactly that answer. I am an engineer myself. Do you have an opinion yet? @Balt- TSMC is probably the biggest

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

Looks like most of these companies are expecting a lot of growth in 2011. That is a good sign for the industry. Thanks for the informative article.

In conjunction with unveiling of EE Times’ Silicon 60 list, journalist & Silicon 60 researcher Peter Clarke hosts a conversation on startups in the electronics industry. One of Silicon Valley's great contributions to the world has been the demonstration of how the application of entrepreneurship and venture capital to electronics and semiconductor hardware can create wealth with developments in semiconductors, displays, design automation, MEMS and across the breadth of hardware developments. But in recent years concerns have been raised that traditional venture capital has turned its back on hardware-related startups in favor of software and Internet applications and services. Panelists from incubators join Peter Clarke in debate.
