At this point, you might as well count Apple out. They are no longer relevant or provide any competition or innovation. http://bit.ly/IC4m9t

I am a bit confused by this. The order in this thread seems to be different from the original article. Is TI number 3? If not, are the the $ numbers correct in the original article? Thanks.

Yes, the entry barrier is very low in the ARM-based chip ecosystem. All the technology pieces (CPU, GPU, DSP etc.) are available on license and the smartphone chip market is over-crowded. However, capabilities such as software expertise, integration, strong OEM relationships, financial strength/ resources and product roadmap will set the best companies apart. It's a growing market and I expect very interesting market dynamics ahead. Regards, Sravan Kundojjala, Senior Analyst, Strategy Analytics.

@sranje: Thanks. Yes, we do track units, revenues and ASPs on a quarterly basis for 13 smartphone chip companies across stand-alone and integrated processor categories. The rankings are slightly different (but not much) in terms of unit shipments. Regards, Sravan Kundojjala, Senior Analyst, Strategy Analytics.

Samsung is in a strong position vis-a-vis the mobile App processors since they got into Apple and because of their surge in smart phone shipments. Qualcomm relies on other OEMs sales, it will be interesting how it would turn out if Apple change their App processor vendor.

Dear Sravan, Excellent data and additional comments - thank you. Wouldn't data in units instead of revenues also be (more?) useful for market shares - ASPs in different segments of smartphones are quite different

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.
