Wolfson Microelectronics has been making losses for a while. In 2012 the company made loss after tax of $6.1 million on revenues of $179.7 million. In 2011 the company made a loss after tax of $17.9 million on revenues of $156.9 million. So things are getting better. The company made profits after tax of about $1 million or about 2 percent of revenues of about $50 million in the last two quarters of 2012. There is therefore hope of an improved profit in 1Q13 to be announced shortly.

If Wolfson is struggling, then Samsung probably got a pretty good deal. This may be an advantage over their competition.

Good news, the Wolfson MEMS audio components are very good, so they should greatly improve the Samsung devices.

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.
