NEW YORK -- The path to China’s opportunity is still shadowed by ambiguity, at least concerning intellectual property.
That was the result of a recent panel this week, moderated by George Scalise, president of the Semiconductor Industry Association, and featuring Mike Fister, CEO of Cadence Design Systems; Laura Stark, VP of platform solutions at Rambus; and Rob Mains, senior distinguished engineer and CTO for design automation at Sun Microsystems.
“China is very strong in manufacturing right now, but they are going to evolve and emerge as a major player across the board,” Stark commented. “They have the intellectual capability and the phenomenal numbers of trained engineers over there.”
