The idea of solar generated electricity dates to discovery of the photovoltaic (PV) effect in 1839 through to the first silicon solar cell in 1954. But even with concerns about oil and the environment, PV currently generates less than 0.1% of the world's electricity. We present here the case that PV is on the verge of becoming a major source of electrical(More)
As VLSI technology advances, it forces changes in the business organization of the industry. Traditional vertically integrated semiconductor manufacturers are concentrating less on manufacturing as foundries such as TSMC, UMC, and Chartered grow. These foundries supply capacity not only to fables houses but also to even large semiconductor manufacturers. As(More)
