Re: Quality

In my personal experience, chinese-made chips are inferior, both in design and manufacturing, but each year, year after year, they're getting less inferior and more refined. Most "new" designs from them still have some problem or limitation, but less and less. For many, the difference simply doesn't matter anymore.

How much time until they're as good as any western chip or better?

(my experience revolves around MCUs, radio/cell modules and simple logic ICs)
