This is so good to be. I am wondering how good there products could be to raise approximately 13% of growth. Well, i hope everything will happen on plans. - Marla Ahlgrimm

@dalest: Yeah, 13% is about 3x the semiconductor market growth! They would love to see double digits again.

13% is good growth.  As the volume continues to grow, there will be more foundaries and dedicated design companies.

Already happening: for exmample, Silex is dedicated MEMS foundry and A.M. Fitzgerald is a fabless MEMS design house.

13% CAGR for the MEMs business, not bad...do you see creation of independent MEMs foundries and fabless MEMs design companies in this market? (like it happened to silicon industry)

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.
