What is the story behind Renesas? That seems like a bigger deal to me than Broadcom's.

53% growth is amazing. So the EEs at Broadcom getting a huge bonus this year? Pretty sure they will be in top 5 within next 2-3 years. Time to buy BRCM stock? http://www.google.com/finance?q=NASDAQ%3ABRCM

This is an excellent show by Broadcom, registering over 50% puts them in the big league. I wonder what market contributed to such a windfall. They are doing some work in mobile space but it couldn't have resulted in such a big chunk of growth.

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.
