What's their strategy ?
alex_m1   2/18/2014 4:11:00 PM
Great story Junko.

I wonder thought: up unto now spansion talked a lot about making microcontrollers with large flash as a unique thing they could do.

But now they sell the hard part for everybody: large flash with low pin count , small size, fast, fit for automtoive. Sound great.

Does this mean they won't invest the large sums of money required to make an mcu with a large flash on a single die ?

Is the strategy is all about controlling the memory interface and with that profoiting from memory and licensing and or selling a  bundle of mcu+flash chips?

Or is it something else ?

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.
