It would be great fun to create a list of some of the other colorful journalists and analysts who were active in producing semiconductor news (and gossip) in the 1955 to 1990 period of ebullient semiconductor growth.

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.
