Rhines will present “Common Wisdom versus Reality in the Semiconductor Industry,” which will address the widely held belief that the electronics industry is entering a mature phase and the glory days of the high-tech innovation are over. Rhines will examine the historical data and trends of the semiconductor industry, answering questions that include: Does this outlook agree with reality? Is the worldwide semiconductor industry truly consolidating? What about the EDA industry? Will excess semiconductor manufacturing capacity fuel a semiconductor recession through accelerating price reductions? Is the cost of 65/45nm technology slowing its adoption in new designs?
