and this in the end means less revenue for fab tool vendors and possible more powerful new venture. all at the cost of already miserable US workers. bye bye GF, or NY fabs.

obvious, they can share 1 set of litho tools instead of buying two sets.

Hope this merger can help improving the profit margin. Anyway, this may be good for Chinese foundry business as a whole.

How much good would that do is my question to those on the know? I would think is like shouting to a tall and omnipowerful wall.

Well, it's comforting to know that the Chinese can now tweet their displeasure for losing their $10/day job...

Things had been changed a long way back. Even a "Communist" company need think how to make profile first.

This makes sense in all ways because in this high capital business, merger is the only model. This industry is not even a high margin, so what the Chinese are doing makes sense.

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.
