ARM certainly has an example to follow in Qualcomm, though. It all depends on what they want to be when they grow up.

It is much less expensive for ARM to scale up by adding licensees than it is to add fab capacity.

I do not think it is a lot of celebration that ARM is still in the range of $290M revenue range. I am not sure if it is the ambition or the business model but if this is to be in America, more will be looking for real growth. Sure, the model is low risk but it is not giving a lot of growth for this world-class organization. ARM needs to rethink if licensing can get them to where they need to be

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.
