Given the fact that every day I see new gadgets in the hands of my kids and their friends, I would agree that the growth of the chip market is fueled by consumer markets. There is a constant pressure to create the next best .... and this is good for jobs and the economy. It is nice to see good news!

Good news . Hope some of these revenue growth and capex spending will be converted to new semi jobs. Would have been interesting to see, whether the growth is mainly from ASIA or US. I can vouch the cell phone craziness in ASIA is a main contributing factor.

Some interesting news. What does this mean? That people is desiring the benefit of electronics. The benefit of communicating through voice, through IM, the benefit of doing massive number crunching calculations for scientific research or whatever other applications might be out there. This can make us think that the high-tech business is good and be glad about being in it. But also we must think of the importance of greener technology since all these numbers signify an increase in electronic junk. Good think Rohs, and other green regulations have been established already. Let invention go forward, what will the chips do next?

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.
