Apple is fourth stage for statups

I would add fourth stage of startups for Ben Lee. Once it surpass third stage, it will be his deep desire to go for Apple. And if Lee gets Apple, he probably will not reply to call from China.

I think it might depend on your business and your perspective. The Chinese potential (untapped) market figure is still a larger number than the number of all the iPhone products ever produced by Apple. 

The other thing is that a supplier doesn't take long to find that not all customers are equal in every way - even if they do pay their invoices on time.

In theory mcube can make smaller, chpscale part by getting rid of plastic package.  But irght now all they sell is conventional packaged parts, and right now they are not the smallest; Bosch has 1.2x1.8mm part that is smaller than mcube 2x2mm smallest part.

 

So far mcube has "cool" tech (MEMS on CMOS wafer) but no real advantage in performance or size.

Thanks for the claification. I believe you are right today, but this story was written in the middle of 2014. I'd have to research the old files to see if you were right then too. In any case, thanks for pointing out the pros/cons, I apprecite it!

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.
