What do readers think? Has Carlo Bozotti done a good job as CEO of ST? Has he taken too many risks -- such as the risk with the ST-Ericsson JV -- or not taken enough risks -- such as ST's gradual exit from leading-edge manufacturing with capex budgets at less than 10 percent of sales? Should he get another term as CEO?

According to Google finance: for the last six quarters, STM losses are considerable higher than the "unusual losses" due to ST-E. Hence, the problems are much deeper than just ST-E. STM spends 25% of its income to R&D, which is more than the double of industry average. Conclusion: its not just the losses associated with ST-E; there is more that is fundamentally wrong at STM.

Bozotti is just a joke. And so is STM, a messy company with over complex alliances to challenge its competitors and a messy organisation to confuse its employees. This company is just useless.

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.
