Why surprised?. We have seen people buying company from Europe and Israel. In future expect more of buying from Asia. Espcially companies are hiring big in Asia. Look at all semiconductor hiring and see about 20-30 hiring in asia. so why not get the team.... Move where the action is......

A fabless American company buying a fabless Chinese company. I have not heard this before. Those who care about manufacturing should read Andy Grove's recent article in Businessweek. Grove makes the point that manufacturing is a skill that the western world voluntarily gives up. I took away from his article that manufacturing itself evolves too. The future of manufacturing is being invented in Korea and China. Maybe in the future the manufacturing giants there will do their own designs that take full advantage of their newly invented manufacturing technologies that the current fabless companies do not know or understand.

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.
