What's really ominous is Samsung's massive historic capital spending..on diversification. Does not bode well for one-trick ponies.

Design rules getting more restrictive, it's becoming all tradeoffs.

Interesting that a number of other market analysts are seeing an up-tick in industry indicators while TSMC (and other foundries?) are seeing a slowdown. Perhaps an indicator of which markets are increasing and which are not?

How is TSMC doing compared to GF and Samsung in 28nm R&D ?

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.
