"With the TAOS acquisition, sensors and sensor interface ICs now account for as much as 70 percent of ams’ revenues". Is it a bit strange that revenue is so dominated by a newly acquired company? Can I say the original AMS guys are not doing well in their original work?

Sensors do account for a large portion of ams’ revenue, especially after the TAOS acquisition last year. However, even before the deal, ams’ product portfolio included sensors for the industrial and medical markets. The deal not only rounded out its sensor offerings, but gave it a bigger presence in smart phones and tablets. It is precisely this area, too, that ams expects to garner higher sales growth with its wireless products, including its NFC-based chips for mobile payment and UHF RFID reader solutions for authentication.

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.
