That's a wafer I'd love to see. ;-)

Correction to the above. 150mm , not 1500mm.

A correction should be made to the closure of 150mm fabs at TI. The Sherman site is still runninng strong and will be the only 1500mm fabrication only site in eigtheen months. I do hope many of the Stafford personnel are able to transfer to the Dallas or Sherman sites given the option.

It's good to hear that TI is seeing stronger business. To the 1000 employees at the affected fabs: I hope you are able to move on quickly to new oppotunities and that this change only makes you stronger.

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.
