What draws my attention is that Atheron is a big package for Qualcomm, or so it seems because they have a broad product portfolio and Qualcomm only reminds me of mobile phones. Will Q' enter the power grid connectivity? or sell chips for laptops and netbooks? perhaps so by leveraging over the new acquisition. And... how about computing power? Isn't adding the Bluetooth and WiFi to the same SnapDragon chip asking a little too much to the same core? Well, I bet these guys know what their doing.

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.
