Hi Bolaji, I believe that planning succeeds better than just ESP. If you need parts, you always need to have at least two suppliers for each part and hopefully three or more. Why? Just for the reasons you stated. In a crunch, you need options. If you have a sorted list of suppliers, you can quickly find a replacement source for a while if your primary source experiences unexpected difficulties. It is all about good risk management and planning. Just my opinion.

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.
