Teranetics, in addition to developing 10Gig Base-T PHY's, is also actively working on energy efficient ethernet PHY's which have been defined for all data and rates and PMD's (twisted pair, backplanes & optical). It is therefore a natural extension for backplane players like PLX to broaden their play in the ecosystem. PhyWorks was also acquired recently. Gennum, cited in the article above, is a Toronto-based company; may be the next acquisition? Dr. MP Divakar

"By that time large competitors such as Broadcom could be at 28nm and startups may need more money to stay on their process road maps" sounds like fish in a tank problem...no matter how bigger tank one arranges for the fish one would have to find a bigger tank consequently until the fish is ready to be eaten.

AMD is flat or declining, Intel PC is retrenching with lower pricing and a market share strategy and PCI chip manufacturer PLX wants to get into cloud computing and server interconnect. Where will the PC business be in 5 years?

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.
