@Peter Clarke: some how the numbers you cite above and the ones by iSuppli don't correlate. For instance, iSuppli is forecasting MEMS growth in consumer & mobile opportunity at ~$4.5B by 2015. If you take out mobile & tablets, there is $3B opportunity in the 'consumer' products? I wonder what are these consumer products that are poised to grow so much with MEMS in them... I know auto's use many sensors but not all of them are MEMS-technology based. Thoughts? MP Divakar

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST
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.
