Morris Chang of TSMC is an Engineer and does not hide it. To go up against TSMC, GloFo would need someone of at least Dr. Chang's caliber. Jha too has a PhD in Engr. ( EE ) and did show good analytical abilities and what one may call Techno - Macho while at QCOMM. What is the alternative ? To bring in another non-Techie like Otellini at Intel and try to avoid making tough decisions for 5 years because you lack the basics ? The semiconductor industry, thank heavens, is still driven by science & engr, so MBAs, Economists or English majors playing Technical Analysts need not apply.

The problem is that the CEO is in the public spotlight.  He has to perform for the shareholders.  The engineers just want to create and have fun.  If the CEO is good, he will give the engineers the direction needed and get out of the way.  If he is not good, he will try to engineer the solution.  His job is not to engineer anymore but to provide the support needed for the engineers.  It sounds like Sanjay may be good at this based on the article.  I'm not sure if Motorola really benefited from his leadership.  I do know that he benefited from Motorola being aquired by Google.

It's natural fo rengineers to be at odds with management given what is epected of them and the lack of a voice that is often encountered....it's not much of a generalization, the CEEO is the face of management, he or she steers the comapny in its stated direction, so much of that dislike for management is going to be centered on the CEO...

Engineer's CEO?

Can a CEO ever be an "engineer's CEO," like an artist has "an artists' artist" or an engineer has an "engineers' engineer"? i was impressed with how Jha was portrayed in the Forbes article. having read engineers' complaints for years about management not getting it. But I don't suppose any business leader gets a big vote of confidence from engineers. It's a big generalization but am I wrong?

@Chipmonk: Yeah, intersting that this is sort of his second encounter with the old Motorola DNA...and now Qualcomm is his target customer.

Jha will have his work cut out for him at GloFo, not let the ex Moto semiconductor types with questionable track record continue, but rebuild his top management with strong technical achievers & managers

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST
As data rates begin to move beyond 25 Gbps channels, new problems arise. Getting to 50 Gbps channels might not be possible with the traditional NRZ (2-level) signaling. PAM4 lets data rates double with only a small increase in channel bandwidth by sending two bits per symbol. But, it brings new measurement and analysis problems. Signal integrity sage Ransom Stephens will explain how PAM4 differs from NRZ and what to expect in design, measurement, and signal analysis.
