On-line voting takes place to allow GSA members, including semiconductor companies and partners, to cast a ballot for the private semiconductor company that they most respect.

As a global organization, GSA also recognizes companies headquartered in the EMEA and APAC regions. Award winners are chosen by the leadership council of each respective region and are semiconductor companies that demonstrate the most strength when measuring products, vision, leadership and success in the marketplace.
