Many of the manufacturers in the energy sector are the heavy electrical and mechanical equipment / component manufacturers that ALSO have a presence in electronics manufacturing (Mitsubishi, Siemens, etc.), whether it is IDM or contract manufacturing model. It is natural to expect them to form alliances with EMS players for emerging opportunities like smart grid. This is nothing new nor enlightening. What would be nice to know is how these EMS players KEEP the same business model that has brought them success and worked for electronics in the energy/renewable energy/smart grid area? MP Divakar

"Energy cannot be created or destroyed, only changed in form" - The first principle of energy conservation. Therefore, all energy is renewable and the name is a misnomer.

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.
