The question is "how do you maintain that stream of revenue from the Japanese customers?” The general feeling is that Japanese OEMs tend to buy chips from their domestic venders. That’s partially the reason why the Japan market is so hard for U.S. IC suppliers to penetrate. Once Sanyo becomes OnSemi, a U.S. based company, the customers may just switch the boat.

Will definitely make the onsemi product portfolio much broader. It's not just the products but gaining the market share through these acquisitions is the basic rule for onsemi!!

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.
