Yes, it really does bolster Microchip’s already strong position in the MCU market since 43% of SMSC’s sales are specialty controllers (not general-purpose) for automotive, wireless audio, computing and embedded control.

Microchip is turning to a mixed-signal solution provider rather than a MCU vendor. Good move!

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.
