With global economy gaining momentum on recovery, new sparks of next wave technology innovation have been generated in Silicon Valley. The demands from new technology sectors including green energy and new usage models in Internet and wireless have dramatically impacted the computing world and are profoundly changing the ways we live. The new business service models provided by cloud computing is disrupting the traditional supply chain of semiconductor, fundamentally transforming the landscape of semiconductor industry. While the adoption of SSD technology in semiconductor systems has dramatically improved the efficiency of computing device, and brought great convenience to consumers. Performance driven computing model is replaced by efficient computing with less power via intelligent power management, and the new usages in internet connectivity, social networking, portability and graphics user interfaces. The digital home revolution empowered by exponential increasing use of image, sound and video content has fundamentally changed the way people manage, use, and share data with interaction between all digital devices conceivable, be it a PC, a cell phone, a PDA, or an entertainment device.
