Keep us posted Peter! One comparison to look at would be the acquisition of Teridian by Maxim for $315M more than two years ago. I seriously doubt if the numbers are anywhere that for Energy Micro. MP Divakar

It may be that Energy Micro was looking to do another VC round and in the looking unearthed the possibility of getting bought out, which no doubt the VCs looked hard at...but one wonders how big a flip it was for the VCs, for Geir, Oyvind and the team?

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.
