Analog transmission has a long way to disappear from the world. Even all the latest digital TV's still employ the analog tuners because most of the transmission is done using analog in the developing nations.

Good one. It is a good way to enter the second half of the year. I think this company has some great IPs and this funding is well deserved

Seems like a good strategy. When all the competition focused their R&D on digital tv receivers, a startup exploring possibilities in analog receivers. Still many countries solely use analog transmission and clearly there is some opportunity there. Once they capture this market, they may have to soon refocus on to something else, as this not a growth market.

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.
