Making accelerated processing units (APUs) for embedded applications is certainly a new strategy for AMD to grow revenue. This has an uptick. Hope Arun Iyengar can deliver on this.

Surely ARM based. Or maybe agnostic to the core in the spirit of HSA?

Is there going to be new processors made by AMD or is it just a class of IP blocks to be used in e,bedded processor applications.

Will that be x86 or ARM based?

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.
