"Spreading to the Edges: Growing a VC Ecosystem
in a Multi-layered Open Model"
The open model for solutions development is quickly extending from
software to other technology areas, such as hardware and services.
Specifically, just as open source has spawned a revolution in the
technical, business, and legal model for software, open hardware will
provide a swell of collaborative innovation that will create entirely
new markets and provide significant business benefits to the most
creative, most reliable, and most adaptable semiconductor, EDA,
System-On-Chip (SoC), systems, SW, and service houses. The open-source
software stack with Linux as its cornerstone is increasingly and
provably the preferred choice for newly venture-funded companies.
Open hardware will also change the world of hardware venture
investing. While the degree of openness and the business model may
vary, hardware and semiconductor products have to be increasingly
developed through a collaborative model that helps assemble IP blocks
and services from multiple sources. In this talk he will describe the
open standards model for hardware, chip, and tool innovation, and will
argue and quantify how openness and a systematic method to value its
associated IP will help the success of this environment, in that it
will allow each member of the value chain - especially small
VC-backed companies - to capture enough value to desire to
