I referred to the Brazilian electronics industry in my article. One of the comments I have heard several times in Brazil is that the industry associations and those who understand the need from universities and industry think they need to have a stronger semiconductor and fabless semiconductor ecosystem in place (just the same way as India is aspiring to develop). However, it seems that it is difficult to stimulate. Would anyone who is reading his in Brazil or Latin America care to comment on how this might happen or what conditions are needed to make it happen?
