But what's not to like about it? They can help SMIC do a better job and, under the pressure of GloFo, Samsung and Intel joining the foundry ranks, SMIC needs some help. And is not more a case of Sean Maloney, having retired from Intel, just looking for something to maintain his interest and fit in between his retirement hobbies.

Not altogether sure I like the sound of this... when you combine Maloney and Tan, they add up to a ton of influence with, and insight into, how cutting-edge designs go together. Very smart long-term strategery! (another way of saying the US is allowing the export (or co-opting) of more shortcuts to advanced technology.)

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST
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.
