Not bad. When the agreement is implemented, Russian fab in Zelenograd will be able to manufacture decent microcontrollers and other useful devices that do not require bleeding edge 22 nm process. In addition I guess this deal may include a university (MIET) in which case this development will directly benefit the education in a key Russian place. There are several design companies in Zelenograd (Elvees, Milandr, KM211 and others) with a mix of old Soviet-time veterans and sharp young engineers proficient with Synopsys and Cadence tools. Those companies may have a very promising future.

Good to see large electronics companies starting to work with semi-private Russian entities. Seems a little bit skewed hi-tech relationship with others on the part of Amercian corporations, when deals are made with Chinese entities and are seen as good for the industry but when it comes to Russia and the rest of the former SU, the cold war mentality still dominates the corporate mindset.

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.
