bad news for micron, where a 6 years sales VP will lead it to? it's heading the same path as intel and even worse...

Micron has been in deep trouble along with the Memory vendors and its technology lags Samsung which now has 40 % of the memory market against Micron's 7 %. Why does not Micron follow Samsung and get into the booming Application Processor business as well ( perhaps using ARM designs like most everyone else ) ? Are they concerned that IDMs and Fabless customers of Micron memory will not like that ? Even the technical / process development issues for making CPUs can be sidestepped. Just the other day there was an article in EE Times about a start - up in San Diego with Processor designs to make reasonably fast processors with transistors optimized for. The chip will have low power dissipation - always a plus for portables.

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.
