Sole supplier and sole buyer don't last long. It would be better for both companies to look for secondary buyer and supplier. On the other hands, market will generally adjust itself because there would be investors seeing the market. They would create another suppliers.

I do not think Apple will find it hard to switch to another supplier should ST terms not suit them.

Is ST the sole supplier of MEMS devices to Apple ? Which other company is supplying MEMS devices to Apple ? Isn't it better for Apple to diversify its MEMS supplie's.

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.
