Holding most of the patent of a positioning, connectivity and application-specific functionality on a single chip will make monopoly of U-Blox in the segment. Very good strategy from the U-Blox Management.

Also interesting that 4M Wireless had a very similar strategy to that of TTP in the 3G generation. It amazes me that 4M Wireless was only valued at $9 million, while Cognovo was valued at $16.5 million. 4M Wireless ought to have a revenue stream from Intel pending while we don't know of any Cognovo design wins.

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.
