Power Architecture microprocessors are running communications networks worldwide, with a big slice of the business in other embedded spaces too. Look for the Power Architecture to continue to grow as detailed in the graphic below. RColinJohnson @NextGenLog
Here is what EETimes says about Power.org: Standards group Power.org recently revealed its Power Architecture Silicon Roadmap, including the microprocessor plans of its members including AppliedMicro, Freescale, IBM, LSI, GDA Technologies, IPextreme, Synopsys, Virage Logic and Xilinx. Power.org claims that the Power Architecture is still leading the world in 32-bit microprocessors. The group hopes to keep things that way, as well as expand its reach into 64-bit commercial cores on the high-end and low-power consumer-grade cores on the low end.
