tell you what, it's all about management skill. stretch from 100 - 1000 R&D team.

GigaDevice's advantage get the priority list right

What would be really interesting to know is the preference order in their list of emerging non-volatile (NV) memory types that they plan to investigate. Will that list be topped by ReRAMs, Magnetic MRAMs, Feroelectric FeRAMS? Of ReRAMs will they opt for mechanisms based on Bulk, Filament, electrochemical bridge, electromigration, vacancy movement or will they take their chances with phase change (PCM). As well as the management team mentioned by one poster here they will need a massive resarch effort and deep pockets to come out on top. They will also need to carefully study the history books that chart past NV memory development efforts (Outside of Flash) and be able to separate the snake oil salesmen from reality.

Whose CMOS?

I suppose they will use IMETU's silicon and CMOS?

I am not sure what manufacturing capabilities IMETU has but GigaDevices is fabless and therefore has relations with foundries (possibly SMIC?) and could probably make arrangements to run R&D wafers there at reasonable but not leading-edge geometries.

That's the thing, foundries don't freely provide R&D wafers.

Yes

You might be restricted to periodic wafer shuttle runs?

Not frequent enough or with enough alterable parameters to allow proper R&D?

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.
