Issue highlights include:

The Big Idea:  As VC money dries up on Sand Hill Road, the semiconductor industry has effectively migrated to China. In the last two years alone, IP suppliers such as ARM, CEVA, MIPS, Tensilica and Silicon Image have seen rapidly increasing interest among Chinese fabless companies in licensing their IP cores. Growing respect for a "grown-up" Chinese chip sector suggests a vastly altered future for the industry. You no doubt heard the same story a few years back about the VC community's euphoria over the emerging Chinese fabless market. But things didn't pan out as predicted.  Find out why it's going to be different this time around and whether China's fabless sector is here to stay.

Company Teardown:  China's Huawei Technologies is readying a new microprocessor design that is expected to challenge rival Cisco's next router chip. The key to Huawei's success is its well known, but jealously guarded, chip division HiSilicon.  We spoke with the ex-Cisco engineer who is heading the HiSilicon design team.
