The LEDs are produced in Asia. Is that a surprise? Almost all semiconductors are produced in Asia. Sure, we have fabs around the world, but assembly and test is in Asia. If you buy an incandescent or compact fluorescent bulb, where was it made?

Nobel initiatives taken by Japanese and Chinese governments. Indian market also has a good growth potential for the LED lighting, if only Government takes some initiatives by spreading awareness and providing subsidy. Frankly speaking, the price of the LED lighting products are too costly and beyond the reach of majority population in India.

LEDs installed in a car may account for a small potion of overall LED market. Yet, what's the impact of the auto industry shifting towards LED signalling light to the LED market?

I wonder if working for $1/day has anything to do with it...

Yep, it's a real comedy, brought to you by the tax and spend clowns in Congress and the White House whose policies do not encourage businesses to manufacture or keep jobs here in the U.S.A.

it is funny to note that there is no mention of Europe or US in this LED growth market. It seems all supply is happening from Asia!

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.
