Various wireless technologies have been really hot for a couple of years already. Now, it is time to turn the technology into gold. Yet, I am sure there are still tremendous opportunity in R&D. Have a headstart of a couple of years experience will definitely help you advance your career. I wonder the meaning of Len Jelinek comment, "Semiconductor manufacturers should be cautious about engaging in any activities that do not support next-generation wireless applications,"

It's a good time to be in wireless. From the chart in this article, it draws attention the drop automotive electronics had from 2011 to 2012. I think the automotive market is an indicator of the confidence people have in committing with debt. This seems to indicate that people are unsure on what to expect economically this year. Or it just means most people bought cars in 2011 and they are enjoying them now in this 2012. What do you think?

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.
