Google may not have said much about the hardware underlying its Wallet in its press release but it did spend some time discussing the NXP PN65 chip in its press conference which was filmed and thrown up on YouTube. That press conference can be found at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=am8t6iZ7up0 The discussion of NXP occurs about 22 minutes in to the event: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=am8t6iZ7up0#t=22m20s

@wave.forest, I agree with you. Google wallet may not be that promising but NXP's NFC is.

Google Wallet may fail but NXP's NFC chip appears to succeed because of the MasterCard PayPass application which runs all the payment platforms.

Good one for NXP. But Google Wallet is truly on a shaky note because of the issues with Paypal

It might be true that NXP had designed and developed NFC solution, but Google Wallet if accepted widely it will give a huge drive to NXP's NFC development, that will create a heavy demand of the solution in many different areas and embedded systems.

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.
