The economy is cyclical, technology is not. The key is to just keep innovating, because eventually, the fog will lift and people will expect these companies to have still been pushing the limits. There's a lot to be said for innovating your way out of a crisis

Steve's comment about poor visibility is key: We've had poor visibility for at least four years. Part of that is macro-economic; but the other more important part is there are no killer apps and may never be. But there are millions and millions of little apps--in the internet of things--that propel the industry forward. Much of that innovation comes from non-traditional customers, I'd suspect, who are now realizing the power of embedded systems to transform whatever they do. That's a good thing.

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.
