PowerPC versus ARM versus Coldfire?

Is there any break-down by CPU architecture?  If I'm not mistaken, Freescale automotive and communication processors are mostly PowerPC, and it would be nice to see growth there so we're not stuck with just x86 and ARM down the road.

I guess that they want in early on the the Hybrid/EV auto growth in China.  First we've heard Samsung SDI, NXP, then Tesla, and now Freescale.  So who else wants to chip in on the auto industry in China?

Good to see Freescale getting some traction.  Automotive has always been their strength so it is good to see them playing to that.

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.
