Hmmm, another company trolling with patents. It will be interesting to see the outcome.

@daleste obviously this company is not in the troll category as in "patent trolls". They have developed their own tech, with VC funding and funding from Intel,Cadence,KLA,Qualcomm. If these kinda startups cant defend their investment, then there is no scope for any new startup or innovation, as any big company can come in and steal tech from startups. The real trolls are companies, just exist to sue other companies without developing own tech. Eg are Interdigial, RPG, Intellectual Ventures..

@daleste Nowadays trolls are defined as any company or person that invents something and defends its IP. Only big companies should be allowed to invent, manufacture, and sell new products, right? Individual inventors should have no rights, correct? If you can't get the funds to manufacture your inventions, too bad. Hail to the large corporations!

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.
