Last time I checked IBM was paying the lion share of the Nano-Complex, billions of $$. But IBM is not mentioned with a single word, hmmm...

No, first guy is right. Just political photoOP. Bad for EETimes coverage. Someone remind me again what great things have come out of this mythical "Valley" in NY? And what happened to that stupid "Alley" they had? IBM has been somewhere up there forever. Yes, good. But. I'm guessing there have been lots of construction jobs pouring concrete for buildings and maybe a fab or two. Where's the Hi Tech? Those AMATs, KLAs, and Tokyo Electrons will move their storefronts if there's not real long-term business. How many other cities has this happened in? This is just politicians spending our money, and now posing for the picture.

Because when national politics intersect with semiconductor manufacturing, it is relevant to EE - regardless of who the political subject is.

What a complete non sequitur of an article. Obama and the NY fab are completed unrelated topics except for the fact he is visiting the complex campaigning. Why would you cover Obama's campaign in a publication that is supposed to be dedicated to EE?

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.
