@Rick, any particular reason why there is growth in Foundry market (+44%) compared to -0.5% growth in IC market ? Does it mean profit of foundry market is independent of IC market profit ?

The flat IC market (cited -0.5% growth) can still mean wide variations among IC players. Those engaged in advance nodes will receive most of the profits.

His follow on slide (page 2 of the story) showed a shift of more wafers coming from foundries and fewer from captive fabs.

It might have something to do with TI http://www.eetimes.com/electronics-news/4186551/Texas-Instruments-exits-process-development-race-item-1 and AMD going fabless

TI isn't going fabless. They are focusing on analog and running only digital in foundries. They continue to invest in analog fabs.

@Rick, so can we assume foundries like TSMC,GF etc will continue to grow in-spite of slowdown in economy because more and more companies are going fabless ?

I understand average forecast for IC revenue (from about 12 other market research firms) in 2013 is about 6% (YoY). 2012 was about -3% average.

What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
