Interesting takes on the low end smartphone market by ARM and CEVA. CEVA suggests using a single chip with with integrated baseband and an application processor, which implies we need a more powerful processor. http://www.eetimes.com/electronics-news/4212765/7-things-to-look-for-at-Mobile-World-Congress?pageNumber=1 ARM on the otherhand suggests to use a stripped down version of its current CPU as the Application processor and leave baseband alone. I think I am with CEVA on this one :)

Wow, that's great news. They are getting more and more ambitious every year. Do they intend to be the Intel+Nvidia for the portable devices?

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.
