MEMS fab seems a good idea and it can help the China to boost up the standard of local-branded sensors.

About 25 years ago Nippon Mining & Sumitomo Metals ( both Japanese ) got into semiconductors. Sumitomo is one of the largest suppliers of raw Si wafers to Fabs. They even have a factory in the US. The Chinese are merely copying with assistance from US veterans ( as reported here like this Mr. Sparks, ex Delco ) made homeless by Wall St.

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.
