@peter.clarke: I got back from DAC two days ago and my recent learning there reinforces some of your observations on the European foundries. But the sheer volume (local market) alone is justification enough for opening multiple MEMS/older technology fabs in India. It is interesting that you bring up Abu Dhabi model (hence Global Foundries!). The presence of a relatively better-, larger-educated workforce (& I am not looking to pick a fight with any one from Abu Dhabi!) gives India an edge that can be leveraged than just cash alone. Only time will tell what success Global Foundries will enjoy. Since I posted my first comment, Pradeep has written more on the topic: Chinese fabless market set to double! And India’s? http://pradeepchakraborty.wordpress.com/2011/06/10/chinese-fabless-market-set-to-double-and-indias/ The More-than-Moore approach is ideal for the Indian market -it has the potential to effectively leverage the country's software expertise to cohabit the hardware potential.

Indians have always been superior in the Computer Science industry. I totally support this initiative and I can't wait to see that project set into work ASAP.

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.
