Indeed. It was my mistake to post the blog last week. I hope that this sets the record straight.

Actually, EE Times knew about Huawei's great focus on custom chips for a while. We had a story on "Focus on Chip Engineering Rewrites Huawei's Story" at our EE Times Confidential site more than a year ago. http://confidential.eetimes.com/company-analysis/4217592/Focus-on-Chip-Engineering-Rewarites-Huawei-s-Story Rick Merrit interviewed Bill Lynch, a veteran microprocessor architect (ex Cisco), who is now working at Huawei in that story.

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.
