If it was primarily customers in Japan, they should recover soon. In the mean time, they are still growing and very profitable.

Very interesting. Hopefully we don't see much of those industry-specific head winds Peter mentioned. The original guidance range is really very large, especially in percentage terms and apparently the somewhat optimistic upper end of the range just didn't happen.

I think Wolfson may have had some company-specific issues with regarding design wins and losses with specific companies. However, it could be a combination of company-specific and industry-specific head winds.

Is this the first such announcement we will see for a large number of tech companies? The companies with large consumer markets may run into similar issues. Wil it hit the FPGA guys? We should know soon...

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.
