In some ways, particularly in Silicon Valley, much depends on how one defines manufacturing. For example, a recent study on technology jobs found that apps for smartphones, tablets and social media have created an estimated 466,000 jobs in the U.S. since 2007, the year the iPhone was introduced. Whether apps qualify as "making stuff" is debatable, but something is being produced and innovation is advancing. The apps study is here: http://www.technet.org/wp-content/uploads/2012/02/TechNet-App-Economy-Jobs-Study.pdf

Really? Where does your 13% number come from? And are you talking about manufacturing employment down -- in Silicon Valley or in the entire U.S.? I would like to know more.

A lot of sugarcoating manufacturing employment down 13%.

Reading positive report like this after so long. I am hope as the report says 2012 will be very good year for semiconductor industry and I really hope this will help reduce the unemployment figures.

Very encouraging report. I wish it accelerates at much faster rate and remain on track for Silicon Valley renaissance.

This is one of the most comprehensive stories on the snapshot of Silicon Valley today. It's data-driven, well backed up by figures and statistics... it sure makes us all want to believe that we are witnessing "the Second Half has begun," just as the author told me.

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST
As data rates begin to move beyond 25 Gbps channels, new problems arise. Getting to 50 Gbps channels might not be possible with the traditional NRZ (2-level) signaling. PAM4 lets data rates double with only a small increase in channel bandwidth by sending two bits per symbol. But, it brings new measurement and analysis problems. Signal integrity sage Ransom Stephens will explain how PAM4 differs from NRZ and what to expect in design, measurement, and signal analysis.
