It was only a year ago when I wrote a story about NXP today being "practically a Chinese company." That was exactly what NXP's CEO told me during an one-on-one interview at that time.

The JV with Datang couldn't have been pulled off without NXP's first-hand experience with talent and automotive market in China.

While the EV market in China is still iffy at best (NXP also knows it), the automotive electronics-focused fabless in China is an intriguing idea; and I will be sure to follow their development; and if there are similar Chinese fabless companies in the automotive electronics popping up soon...

Automative ICs are very vast field. What type of ICs they are focused on? Is it high voltage power electronics or MEMS or high temprature analog/digital/mixed siganl ICs used near high temperature engine?

If EVs is going to be the focus , then the focus will definitely be on battery management ICs and the motor control ICs which form the crucial part of the EV control system.

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.
