Topic: "Is the Fabless/Foundry Model Dead? We Don't Think So. Long Live
Foundry 2.0!" Manocha will argue that criticisms of the foundry (contract
manufacturing) business model for semiconductor manufacturing are wrong, and
that as he sees it, chip companies which design and manufacture their own
products are the ones which should be worried.
