It looks like the quid pro quo of the Simens deal (among other things). I cannot imagine a major power like Russia foresaking an opportunity like this to master a key and strategic technology area.

I don't believe Mikron was ever at the leading edge. It has lost ground on the TRAILING EDGE of western hemisphere IC production. But can we see signs that a Russian-German political axis is starting to gain momentum; that the price to be paid for Siemens' welcome in Moscow and Russian contracts is that Infineon must surrender a significant stake in itself and show Mikron how to make chips.

Mikron may have lost ground in keeping up with the West in terms of leading edge IC production, but one can do a lot with More than Moore at 90nm as well. With Mikron potentially licensing STMicro's 90nm technology it will interesting to see what other markets their chips will end up in besides passports and entry cards to the Moscow metro.

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST
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.
