I like this move...instead of going down with Moore's law in CMOS which is very costly it is better for a company like Xfab to go lateral and acquire MEMs business...however, I wonder what is the stage of standardization in the MEMs space, last time I looked everyone had a different process, the MEMs manufacturing eco-system needs to become more vanilla like CMOS in the 70-ies

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.
