This really doesn't surprise me. With the Internet of Things coming on strong, I suspect that this trend will continue for quite a while. However, as more things get connected, more things will have computing capability added in. As the computing capability in those devices grows, are the chips still considered communications? Or do they end up being classified as computers?

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.
