Really looking forward to next Tuesday’s (March 2) Semico Summit in San Jose and in particular the keynote by hardware industry legend, Tsugio Makimoto


There are few absolutes in life, death, taxes and the repeated cycles of standardization and customization in the semiconductor space. Makimoto has charted the massive movements from standardization to customization and back to standardization affecting literally billions of dollars (yen too) in products over the course of decades. Makimoto, the chairman of Semiconductor Industry seniors, is literally a legend in the industry.

A complete agenda of the Semico Summit is available here and on Semico’s website The conference begins with registration/breakfast at 7:30 am and Makimoto speaks at 8:45 am. Come join me at the Doubletree Hotel in San Jose.
