An acquisition would be worth considering a year or two ago. And I think it would have been perhaps Intel, Qualcomm, or TI trying to buy Marvell given the low P/E ratio, healthy income stream, and no debt.

Is there any technical/logical reason for Marvell to buy EZchip? Is there a strategic technology or synergy that I am missing that would make sense? I am curious as to why they would do this.

Interesting when analysts make suggestions. Business is not just numbers. Otherwise AOL and Time Warner would not have broken. Marvel better grow organically than risk all these gambles.

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.
