The semi conductor sector on the all is poised for a large growth in the next few years. The electronics will probably become huge consummable spend for any country may be higher than fuel.

The semiconductor IC market has been stalled at a value of about $300 billion for several years now.

Unit volumes have increased steadily at an average of about 10 or 11 percent but the "consumerization" of the electronics has meant that average selling prices (ASPs) have fallen by about the same amount.

That means margins are getting squeezed which in turn is driving established manufacturers out of the market in favor a few very high volume makers (foundries).

So why do you think things will be different going forward?

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.
