It would have been better to sell one outright than Mergers. The industry is so competitive that even post-merger, they are very small to challenge the big guys.

Yes, but it may be marginal competition. The real problem is coming from Asia. As we saw the steel industry go in U.S/Wester Europe. most of these companies will be challenged by globalization. M&A will help but the global competitive market will not disappear.

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.
