Or perhaps USB 3.0?

What surprise me is loosing so fast. ASIC, supercomputers at least fought and compete in the market till they failed. And for this company I still don't find any strong reason to die. Agreed they may not be very profitable but I am very sure there was run way to catch up with market, unless some of VC's were up for fast returns only.

What was the biggest miscue in the history of Intel? I say it was its failed comm IC efforts. Thoughts?

Intel has been known for too-leading-edge tech experiments since its early days. When I bought my first x86 (1980 Intel SDK-86), Intel's Next Big Thing was Bubble Memory. It was one of those amazing products that just made you go 'WOW', but other than ARPA it never flew. I am glad we have corporations that still stick their neck out in this age of MBA-led copy-leeches. I don't like the government bribes that are also called 'economic development incentives', but they seem to be a fact of life with these bloated state and federal governments that have sucked the life out of real savings-based investments. They are wasted most of the time because they are generally based around hiring low value labor.

The field has gotten plenty of attention and developmen dollars of late... and mostly non-US based. Maybe it was a decent attempt at trying to grow something in the US that could have succeeded but not something this size in this environment of huge investment by competition.

I truely agree with @realist, with some more adding on the list. Weak/premature R&D, with fewer budget also going into production with no such guaranteed sales/market insight where u are basically behind the game and beaten by far east competitors. Perhaps intel is not really willing to win and extend its muscle power at other grounds, or has really terrible advisers. Most recent fail was numonyx. I really dont understand how come such giant company cant reach to markets and customers for their new branch products with such great production capacity available?! If they go on like that they will for sure feel the serious heat of ARM at their very basic play ground. Let see what will infineon acquisition bring. Perhaps cooperation with nokia for their atom based products and infineon based sets would bring some ignition where they are also involved in SW side.

Mark: I think you are right on the money. Intel is doing great one thing, and one thing only (microprocessors). I have never worked at Intel but I can imagine a culture: unless you build quickly a new billion dollar business you are bound to fail. Probably you would be better off and not try. Or just seed some other investments thru Intel capital and let them run completely independent of Intel itself...Kris

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST
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.
