E-DRAM is an interesting approach for SoC. I wonder how refresh works if the system has to go to sleep.

Well whatever the reason is, the direction they are pursuing seems to be very wise. SoC's are bound to become more popular and the cloud computing environment is a developing business that I think will redefine many different areas of personal and business technology. Effects will be dramatic in the PC and software industry, if acceptance is not stymied by security, accessibility, and data loss issues.

@Frank: There could many reasons for announcements like these, like needing to have customer 'share of mind', need to outline the company vision and product plans (which can happen after mergers which Renesas just experienced), or a public stance when a particular socket is pursued with a key potential customer, or a subtle vendor/supplier negotiation, or plain internal divisional competitiveness. Usually there are simple reasons aiming for image making and reminders that the company is aggressive in product roll-outs.

I'm always curious when companies make announcements like this about refocusing efforts or intentions to gain market share in one segment or another. Why this announcement and why now?

Should we be seeing an announcement from Renesas that they are joining the OpenPDK and Design for Manufacturability Coalitions? see "GlobalFoundries joins OpenPDK group" Mark LaPedus 9/28/2010 11:32 AM EDT

SoC is the next generation electronic device which will replace most of the discrete devices including processors as well. Renesas's aiming is in right direction as per my point of view.

To say that Andy Weir's The Martian is an exploration of math, Mars, and feces is a slight simplification. I doubt that the author would have any complaints, though.
