TAIPEI, Taiwan—(BUSINESS WIRE)—November 8, 2006— FSA, the voice of the global fabless business model, held its third annual FSA Suppliers Expo TAIWAN & Semiconductor Leaders Forum at the Taipei International Convention Center on November 8. The event was co-organized by DigiTimes.

The title of Dr. Lu's speech was "Perspectives on the Global IC Design Industry and New Business Models." In the speech he demonstrated a video of General Douglas MacArthur inspiring the West Point students to emphasize his argument that "Entrepreneurs should plan their products base on customer and humanity needs, not just aiming for money."

-- Keith Barnes, president and CEO, Verigy, Ltd. - "Synchronizing the Supply Chain for Brilliant Results"
