I would think the skill comes from managing the multi-cultural environment of these global businesses, some more so than others, internally but they all have global markets and need to read those correctly to plan and take risks with the future direction of plant and product investments.

Any one of this executives would make for a deserving winner of the award. But for me, Akao may well be the favorite, simply because of the mess Renesas was left with after the Japan quake. To get the fabs back up and running ahead of schedule required a very impressive company-wide effort, even while Japan as a country was still reeling from the disaster. That takes inspiring leadership. I also think that the impressive turnaround of Cadence under Lip-Bu Tan deserves a lot of consideration.

You're right. You should do more stories about what's behind all the news -- especially when it comes to hard decisions these top executives need to make. As for the winner of the Executive of the Year, stay tuned. It will be announced next Tuesday evening in San Jose, Calif.

My choice would be the chief of Juki.

I like to read about the persons behind the companies and how they influence their success. Many times the difficult and negative events shake things up to either improve them or remove the weak. "When the going gets tough, the tough get going". That is what happened with Renesas and Cadence. And really impressive that move of cutting paychecks to survive in the case of Juki Automation Systems. An the winner is... ?

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.
