What's Andy smoking these days? Apple would counter his merchant silicon argument and who's developing full custom chips these days except Intel and AMD. Most merchant silicon in networking are developed using standard cell ASIC libraries. He's got his head in the clouds these days. Arista will get absorbed into some other networking company if they keep reselling Intel reference designs. Using merchant silicon is good if you want to get to market quickly but you can't hold your lead relying on suppliers. All your competitors have access to the same silicon.

optical waveguide is certainly a hot area and we expect that to continue.

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.
