Cowan LRA Model   5/28/2011 8:59:28 PM
The 3MMA April sales forecast estimate that the Cowan LRA forecasting model "spit out" last month corresponds to an April "actual" sales forecast estimate of $23.49 billion. The above Cowan predicted 3MMA sales expectation also assumes that there will be no (or very minor) revisions to either February or March's actual sales numbers as reported last month by the WSTS. Plugging in the actual April sales estimate into the model yields a year 2011 overall semiconductor global sales forecast of $322.53 billion which corresponds to a yr-over-yr sales growth prediction of 8.1 percent. This result is therefore more bullish than Diesen's prediction of 5 percent. Stay "tuned" for next month's model run of forecast estimates following the WSTS's reporting of April's actual sales figure expected at the beginning of June.

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.
