It appears we are getting out from the economic crisis. People are buying television receivers and cable set top boxes. Let's hope this gets even better. And it appears analog chips are still in demand. I think they will always be among us as digital can't do it all... right? will SDR catch-up?

I think analog will always be in demand. The industry and applications for analog chips is so big, and though it might overlap at times with embedded, mostly it holds its own. Within digital, there might be technologies that eat into each other, but analog and digital will remain together on every board.

Looks like all of them are saying that fourth quarter will be a little lower. That is normal, so I don't see this as predicting a downturn in analog business.

But cable settop boxes are thing of past now. Now you will get televisions which have cable settop box inbuilt in it. Definitely analog will rule the world till VLSI is present. Afterall this world is Analog..:)

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.
