This conversation features eSilicon’s Ajay Lawani who talks about major challenges facing today’s silicon supply chain. He specifically speaks to how the increasing complexity at advanced process nodes is affecting customers’ ability to effectively work with the supply chain. Ajay also discusses how the industry is responding to the continuing decline in the number of leading-edge foundries and the resulting lack of competition for the few players who remain. Since it has impacted so many people and companies, Karen asks Ajay about how the crisis in Japan has changed the supply chain and customers’ view of it.
