re: Imagination profit drops on R&D spend

In this case I don't think they are out of control. Imagination has a multi-year plan of which buying MIPS was a part. It will be interesting to find out who is the entrpreneurial visionary who is going to be doing the driving there. One problem that both ARM and Imagination now have is that they are loaded with legacy responsibilities. There may yet be an opportunity for a new kid on the block (or an old one like AMD) to come up with a novel processor architecture that is better suited for the heterogeneous multicore era.

Sometimes, increased R&D spending can signal good things in the future. Other times, it just means they are out of control.

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST
In conjunction with unveiling of EE Times’ Silicon 60 list, journalist & Silicon 60 researcher Peter Clarke hosts a conversation on startups in the electronics industry. One of Silicon Valley's great contributions to the world has been the demonstration of how the application of entrepreneurship and venture capital to electronics and semiconductor hardware can create wealth with developments in semiconductors, displays, design automation, MEMS and across the breadth of hardware developments. But in recent years concerns have been raised that traditional venture capital has turned its back on hardware-related startups in favor of software and Internet applications and services. Panelists from incubators join Peter Clarke in debate.
