Hard to say, but maybe you're onto something. A trip through their website and Googling their name gives no indication of what if anything "RDA" might stand for.

RDA, That's obviously the RCA brandname changed by one letter. lol...not sure why they would want to rip off an old US TV and radio brandname. Some better choice of company names in my opinion: RONY, RANISONIC, RAMSUNG, RANYO...

What are the IPs RDA going after? Nonetheless, for a Chinese company to buy another Chinese company for the IPs, does it mean an improvement of respecting Intellectual Property?

That is a lot of money for a largely commodity business in this age.

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.
