OK, with the benefit of hindsight, I can now sound like a great Pundit! Within two weeks after this article, Intel bought Fulcrum and MicroSemi bought ASIC Advantage... just to prove EE Times wrong!! Or so me thinks! I like to look at acquisitions as a healthy trend and renewed confidence in the economy. I am hoping for one myself in the startup I am in! MP Divakar

That simply shows that the bubble is near. That is what it is all about. We are close to a bubble and the recycle continues

@chanj Acquisitions -- Consolidation happens -- Job Loss. IPO--More money with startups--New jobs created(at least temporarily)

I dont think its because of concerns over Global economic, its more to do with the fact that more and more people want to invest in technology stocks, there are already concerns if this is beginning of new tech-bubble

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.
