Cowan LRA Model   6/9/2011 10:43:41 PM
The latest update from the Cowan LRA forecasting model, based upon April's recently published global semiconductor sales by the WSTS, predicts a 2011 sales forecast estimate of $322.328 billion. This corresponds to a 2010 to 2011 sales growth forecast estimate of 8.0 percent. This growth number is more bullish than the WSTS's Spring 2011 forecast expectation of 5.4 percent reported above. Remember that the Cowan LRA model is rerun and thus updated each month immediately following the WSTS's release of its latest sales numbers at the beginning of each month. Consequently, the updated forecast number(s) derived by the Cowan LRA model will evolve each month as the latest global semi sales are redported by the WSTS. Therefore, stay tuned for the next monthly sales forecast update from the model - expected on or about July 5th, 2011. Mike Cowan, independent semi industry analyst and developer of the Cowan LRA forecasting model

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.
