The European semiconductor industry is missing the point, says Maria Marced, President of TSMC Europe.
"Europe is shifting - changing towards analogue mixed signal rather than digital designs," said Marced, "it's driven by the customers, the OEMs."
"The semiconductor vendors got misled. We missed the bus on application processors like we missed the bus on CPUs," added Marced, "we should focus on RF, embedded flash, power semiconductors and analogue mixed signal in general. That is what the OEMs are driving."
