I think it is defensive. But most of the SoC market is using Arm processors these days since it is easier to buy it than develop it and the related software infrastructure. Most OEMs prefer it. The issue becomes whether a semiconductor company such as Fujitsu has internal IP and SoC architectures to differentiate themselves. The Japanese companies were the original Asian tiger who gave consumers advanced technology with intuitive interfaces. Today, Apple tends to wear that crown. And tomorrow is an open question.

You sound right. After becoming a huge company with many different products to offer, it always becomes important to keep it running rather than innovating anything new.

Is a defensive more or offensive? All these firms are working to preserve themselves than innovate and compete.

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.
