Not sure about that. It makes sense if you are a complete solution provider, otherwise it's quite risky.

I am not sure if I agreee thayt foundry business is in trouble. I gues with times to come chip businesses will only accelerate.

I wonder how much the production interruptions in Japan could play into the "over-supply" of Fabs? It seems wise to have diverse Fab locations and while very expensive to build/run, owning your Fab does give you control over your destiny (for good or for bad).

UMC so far ignored but last I checked it's still #2, just ahead of GF. Has it dropped behind so rapidly, at least in reputation?

Sounds like Intel is trying hard to justify its own investment strategies! How exactly is TSMC a trailing edge, by the way?

if there was oversupply why fablite/fabless companies suffered during '10-Q3&Q4 coz' of delayed shipments/outcomes where big players had the bigger pie always on time? Where was this overcapacity and why did foundries let their small size customers down? Another Otellini speech where he is trying to mirror focus on other direction. I truelly agree with u @Rick, where are intel's serious moves against ARM? soon after it will be too late

Intel is a large and profitable chip producer. I am sure they are keenly aware that Windows and x86 are running out of steam. And they're expanding capacity while at the same time pointing out an overcapacity in the industry? So what gives? There is more than one metric that needs to be addressed to be successful in the evolving mobile market. Of course power consumption is of prime importance. Also of great importance is cost. Intel could manufacture an Arm license but that incurs royalties. Intel in the past, with some notable failures, has attempted to architect to meet specific applications. The 432 comes to mind. However, Android type environments could benefit from a specific architecture. There is, in my opinion, the likelihood of increasing power/workload efficiency while reducing cost. To do this Intel needs to step back and approach the silicon/software solution much more holistically. It would mean substantially increasing the software side of the equation.

GF may gain a yield advantage, a cost advantage and new customers for new nodes.

So then AMDs decision to dump its foundries was not a bad one after all. Since they will not have to pay a premium while the foundry is not at 100%.

mranderson, How will GF gain? Who's using GF's 40 and 28nm today?? Have not heard anyone claiming they are using GF technology today, have you? If you know, please copy the links here. TSMC is the only foundry who're having these issues. Others even don't know what the issues are!

What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Are the design challenges the same as with embedded systems, but with a little developer- and IT-skills added in? What do engineers need to know? Rick Merritt talks with two experts about the tools and best options for designing IoT devices in 2016. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
