This is great deal for AMD.They have chosen the right fields for this grant. Ares like ultra-low energy computing will definitely have bigger share of market in future.

40 patents and lots of publications in five years is not at all a bad deal for ARM in the age when the IP is more and more valuable and a single patent can go for over a million.

This university is emerging as a top center of low power. This is certainly commendable. More students will be applying there for PhD

If ARM executives are smart they will not make support conditional on using ARM platforms. After all they are trying to find out what extra needs to be done to make their processor architectures better. And I am sure that there are plenty of x86-driven notebooks and servers in use in the relevant department of the University of Michigan. But at the same time, where a host architecture is required and is orthogonal to what is under research, such as software agents roaming over wireless sensor mesh networks, why not use ARM. Perhaps Flautner will be arranging a drop-off of several hundred Cortex-M3 based microcontrollers.

This sounds like a great partnership in an area of increasing importance. The challenge I see is that sponsored research may trigger academic tunnel vision: it may be directed towards utilizing the sponsor's technology and not encourage promising work that happens to utilize competing technologies.
