CSR has made some interesting moves in the last year or so and I am curious to see what new directions they move in with some of their newly acquired IP.

CSR certainly knows how to find value. The Map-X audio product line is the only valuable part of Trident even before bankruptcy. Audio especially in vehicles is a growth business.

The quote from Anthony Murray is interesting. Does CSR have some statistical data on consumer purchase habits of HD TV's? Maybe I'm missing something, but I would have thought the use of built-in speakers on large screen HD TVs would be on a steep decline as most HD sets are marketed along with external home theatre sound systems. It wouldn't surprize me if TV makers move to a "package deal" philosophy and get rid of internal speakers altogether in their large HD sets.

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.
