I was surpised to see that someone bothers transfering 1um CMOS process...if I recall properly that process was developed in late 80ies...still going strong after 30 years! Kris

It is very encouraging to know that the Indian semiconductor market is estimated to grow to 100 billion in 2020. I think the semiconductor market in India was $6.5 billion in 2010 and is estimated to grow to $9.8 billion by 2012 (~50%). With this same growth rate, it might reach $50 billion by 2020. Is $100 billion not too optimistic?

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.
