@dnenni: how about EUV? Pushed out to 2015? Nikon's Lithovision this year will be interesting, I suspect we will hear the same reasons for the delay as last year's!
@sranje: if 2011 ends up being a double digit growth year for chip companies, you think hiring will keep pace?
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.
