Every year (or so), EE Times assembles a list of electronics and semiconductor startups that have the potential to create a lasting impact. The Silicon 100, now in its 23rd edition, is marked by three major trends: high levels of interest in artificial intelligence, a significant surge in Chinese startup activity and an increase in startup formation globally across the breadth of the electronics and semiconductor domain.
Over the past twelve months, Peter Clarke, a technology and business journalist who has curated the EE Times Silicon 100 list since its inception in 2004, has been exploring where technical expertise meets continuous innovation and tracking the peaks and troughs of investment returns. To allow a more granular analysis, Clarke has also expanded the technological categorization to 24 areas, ranging from the least abstract and most fundamental to the most complex and highest level of abstraction.
The Silicon 100 is now inseparable from the China Fabless 100. For the third year, the AspenCore China analyst team has waded into the domestic IC design ecosystem and ranked fabless semiconductor companies based on the organizations’ technical attributes and their growth potential on a national and global scale. The China Fabless 100 is now a critical component of the rational decision-making process for investors and market professionals.
Forty companies in the Silicon 100 Class of 2023 are new to the list. Find out now who has made the cut this year!
