Although technological diversification is an important strategic decision for both large and small firms alike, the conventional method of measuring such diversification may well introduce significant scale bias against small-and medium-sized firms. We examine this issue in this study using a sample of 73 Taiwanese integrated-circuit (IC) design firms(More)
We set out in the present study to examine 1997–2007 data on inventors, based upon country of residence, and on the process of co-invention, with the ultimate aim of undertaking analysis of the main partner countries currently collaborating with China in global technological production. Through our focus on China, we are able to demonstrate the evolving(More)
USPTO patent data covering the years 1994–2008 is used in this study to examine the citation networks of electronic-paper display technology. Our primary aim is to provide a better understanding of the ways in which emerging firms interact with, and learn from, technology diffusers. Two implications can be drawn from our analysis. Firstly, emerging firms(More)
The global development of solar photovoltaic power is seen as a potentially major technology in the pursuit of alternative energy sources. Given its evolutionary nature, in terms of both technology and the market, there is some discernible divergence between the innovative capability and production capacity of certain countries. We set out in the present(More)
Through the adoption of a two-step methodology, this paper sets out to examine the pattern of diffusion of mobile telecommunications with the aim of identifying the key factors influencing the diffusion rate for 29 OECD countries and Taiwan between 1980 and 2001. We find that the pattern of diffusion of mobile telecommunications for all the sample countries(More)
The acquisition of new technologies represents a vitally important and fundamental goal of many corporate managers, particularly those within the medical device industry. We collect data on ten medical device companies as our sample in this study, covering the period from 1990 to 2006; this sample is drawn from the top 20 companies in the US, on the basis(More)
We examine how strategic partnership affects external learning of technology descendants from emerging markets under the context of Taiwan’s flat panel display industry. The study takes patent citation as a trail of knowledge flow, and incorporates 1,726 pairs relations of the cited and citing firms. Our empirical evidence shows positive pattern of external(More)
This paper is set out to examine the temporal pattern of innovative activities: what might have affected a firm's patenting from one period to the next. Based upon data on 'information technology' (IT) manufacturing firms in Taiwan covering the years 1990– 2001, we develop a survival model to analyze the underlying drivers of patenting duration. Our results(More)
