Good News that Google is rampingup efforts for chip design. These should be for more consumer product design. For these type of products one need to have custom design ICs.

Along with processing, it will involve MEMS and other mixed signal technology.

I was at a motor control seminar last year; 3 Google employees attended, but wouldn't say why they were there .  My guess is just to learn.

Could it be a CPU optimized for Android that Google can sell together with their OS? it the only link I see to the mobile market & IoT.

I've reached out to a couple Google contacts for an interview, but given the secretive posture the search giant historically has taken around its data center technologies, I don't expect any substantive responses any time soon.

That said, I am ready any time for an interview with anyone who knows more about this topic.
