Freescale is having enough good will towards their employees and customers. The compensation it is paying to the employees to rebuild their lives will help the employees to the best. Identifying alternate components and informing them to their cutomers will make them comfortable.What ever way i look on this i feel that freescale is doing a good to all concerned inspite of the troubles they have now.

Freescale may be walking away from "rebuild" money by making this announcement in this manner... It's not clear what benefit Freescale has by making this announcement at this point.

Sorry to hear this news. But these sometime happen for many companies due to the expenses that are involve rebuilding damage sites. This has nothing to do with Japan. Japan is a great Country.

Freescale's i.MX products are not impacted, as they are not manufactured at the Sendai facility.

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.
