No, not really. unlike the mobile app processor space the wireless technology updates/upgrades at a much faster rate so it makes much sense for standalone companies innovating in this area to bring the latest standards into practice.

It seems that the way to go forward is having tight integration with the mobile apps processor and the baseband chip. Which is why Intel snatched Infineon LTE, NVidia got Icera and Qualcomm got the integrated baseband. Altair's best option in the long run, will be to get acquired by one of those mobile CPU vendors.

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.
