It was coming, they cannot compete in the market. It is long expected that this firm can go down.

FSC South Portland is said to be the oldest continually operating Semiconductor Manufacturing operation in the USA; opened in 1962. More USA capabilities disappearing to never return. Ave atque vale !

Maybe the cut caused the share price to rise?

Fairchild's share price jumped like crazy in the past weeks. So it’s kinda weird to hear they cut on workforce. Is South Portland the only fab they have in U.S.?

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.
