Product mix is one issue. One supplier has major quality problems affecting their volume supply into the data center segment. They're now down binning into tier 2 & 3 segments creating an over supply condition and crashing the price. Recovery? Late 2011 is questionable though 2Q 2012 is the best bet.

Possibly a shift from PC to tablet/pad, the latter having NAND and relatively little DRAM, compared to the former.

Interesting. Is this due to manufacturers shifting to other types of memory, or to a decrease in PC sales? What does this indicate about the overall health of the electronics industry?

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.
