So many news from Renesas recently. Good or bad? I believe the management is having hard time. Just hope this company can reshape better so it can find its focus well. This company is really doing good in automotive field so they need to be picky in strategies.

With the spiraling trend towards fabless, is the industry is danger of putting too much control in too few hands as far as fabrication goes. Though it is the most expensive thing to own for technology companies, without a degree of control and availability of fab no industry can hope to bring new and better semiconductor products to the markets. In-spite of so much demand for silicon why is there no efforts towards economy oriented fabs which can be run by at least a billion dollar company? Would universities be able to help in this move?

Hopelly this will save some of the jobs at the Roseville fab that may have been lost under Renesas.

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.
