You've got to wonder
how well Arm will continue to do as China gradually weans itself off Western intellectual property. There's not only a huge home market; China is also one of the biggest exporters of electronics.
Are the world's consumers going to stop / be prevented from buying Chinese goods once they have RISC-V as a primary processor? Or
Will there be a 'Tech Curtain', with the BRICS nations (et al.) going Open Source, and the West clinging onto the proprietary IP model? (And which aesthetic will Europe choose?) Or
Will RISC-V be increasingly incorporated into Western electronic devices too?
I think it's telling that Google announced at the end of last year that they're readying Android for RISC-V... Whether it'll be chosen over a purer Linux OS in China, remains to be seen.
