I think this buy makes sense. An immediate arena of applications for the merge could be Enhanced reality products. Combining image and geo-location can become a good deal. Something new might even come up that involves imaging and connectivity like Bluetooth and Wi-fi. CSR can become a broader solution vendor. CSR is beefing up!

I think the multimedia entertainment marketplace is too crowd and not many companies can really make money from it. For CSR, it may be good for them to search for new market.

It is a tough world out there - competition is extreme and in coming years, many more will go. I do not see the market because the Chinese firms have figured out to liberate design where they buy chipsets and come up with nice gadgets. Increasingly, legacy suppliers are not finding more markets.

Looks like CSR is following the footsteps of Qualcomm, aiming to be more of a full portfolio player in consumer markets a la Broadcom

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.
