"intensive competition is being waged by national and regional governments to attract semiconductor manufacturing and [R&D] investment," the SIA report asserted".... U.S. "Trade" Policy & "GamePlan" => "oh-well ... SemiConductors are not important". Eventually - No U.S. Industry will be important (including U.S. Military ... which won't have much of a base to work from regarding "Next-Gen" Hardware ... ut let's not think about that - now!!!)

"SIA called for new U.S. tax and economic incentive policies to boost chip manufacturing and R&D".... whcih is when American Companies say they are "American Companies", please help us ... and then after the "American Companies" get the incentives (& bailout $$$ from U.S. Taxpayers) then they go back to Shipping U.S. Jobs Overseas and Hiring H1-B Workers for U.S. Jobs in the U.S.

Just shows you what foresight US companies and governemt have with regard to home-grown R&D. Companies are trading near-term stock growth and capital gain for far-term capability. Once all the expertise and manufacturing is abroad, what are WE left with here other than the consumer market?

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.
