for sure cause of IC industy. We have highest IC capacity utilization as 95,6%, and expected to face demand vs utilization shortage as SICAS indicated. Due to many closed fabs we will have further troubles which is a good sign for Si. suppliers. Their future orders till Q1 11 guaranteed. For further let see what solar would bring.

More good news for the semiconductor industry. Is all this IC based or also solar-array industry?

Put differently: 8.9 billion square inches = 5.74 square km. This means that 2010 production will in terms of area exceed the size of Central Park (3.41 square km) for roughly 70%.

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.
