ABSTRACT
This article reports that huge venture capital investment in wireless technology start-ups has persuaded large companies to stand back and watch while the smaller firms engage in a bloodbath. The larger firms are waiting to acquire the survivors. According to Joe Adams, vice-president for business development at SkyWorks, there's a tremendous amount of cash available in this sector but there are only a few places where people will make money, and the venture capitalists will be expecting revenues from trade sales to large companies. Bruce Watkins, president of UWB start-up Pulse-Link, also says that there's a grand future for UWB, but those taking on the market need to find ways to make money before the market develops.
