The world seems to moving into a direction of forming a giant assembly line. The manufacturing of parts and the creation of products are done through different companies. If manufacturing of LCD is concentrated to only a few companies, like Kinnar said, will monopoly be formed? What would be the impact to the price of final good?

Interesting. I never expectd the industry to shape this way. But either way, LCD wins

It should not happen that LCDs will become a monopoly item of only few companies, if the giants are leaving the business like this.

This would really help these LCD manufacturers to concentrate more on the large panels used in TV's.

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.
