Really great News! We need more gvt support! Maybe we will see a scenario like we saw at SC300 (first 300mm fab in the world; JV between Infineon and Motorola). However, this may all there will be: nothing more but R&D or pilot in Europe. Just can't see 450mm volume in Europe. Way too expensive there even with gvt support.

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.
