Brian, Bill McLean's forecast is for the next decade; my correlation with capital spending affects only the next 2 or 3 years. I'll leave the long term predictions to the long term forecasting experts. Wally

Wally, very insightsful piece! It begs the question: do you buy into Bill McLean's take at IC Insights that semiconductor CAGRs will move back toward 8 percent annual in the next decade?

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
