Congratulation to Intel. This win could definitely bring more significant contracts in the future to develop more different devices specific for IVE applications.

After Nissan, I wonder when Intel can design into Renault.

This is note-worthy because the IVI systems were used to be dominated by either the proprietary architecture from Renesas, or the PowerPC architecture, or the ARM architecture. Nissan is a major vehicle and therefore represent the first major design win for the embedded x86 in the IVI applications. It was a public information that embedded Atom was designed into at least one IVI system in China last year.

Perhaps its newsworthy in the man-bites-dog sense, which would have been more clear if Dylan's headline had begun with "OMG!" :)

what an absurd bit of non-news. why would it matter at all whether the inside of a component is one x86 processor or another? or even if it's x86 at all? the volume of this device is not trivial, but not really significant either in a market that sells many hundreds of millions of processors.

what part is this? Just a Atom proc or the hybrid part containing Atom proc and reprogrammable area in same package? The implication would be very different from market's standpoint for the different parts.

you don't need an apostrophe in "pick's" in the title.

Always felt this was too distracting for the driver.

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.
