" Now, there's a challenge if ever I saw one! Intended not as a challenge, but merely a ruse to divert your laser-like focus away from the Mirrored Ball of Shiny Things for a few picoseconds... " Yet still the P&R doth route evermore A monosyllabic "PAR" hearkens more closely to the mellifluous metre of your original prose. Place and Route (PAR), as brought to us by NeoCAD, which still lives on as 'par.exe' in the current Xilinx and Lattice FPGA software: "PAR: Place And Route Diamond_1.4_Production (87).

With a few minor edits, let us hijack the envisioned scene as an engineering status meeting, deep in the heart of Ankh-Morpork's technology district, on the eve of a product shipment deadline: Furtive Figure: "A gibbous moon hangs pendulously in the sky..." Doorkeeper: "Sails the bitstream with the morning tide..." Furtive Figure: "The error log portends a day of woe..." Doorkeeper: "Monk fish croon their soothing songs of SDC..." Furtive Figure: "Yet still the PAR doth route evermore." Alternate lines: "Marketing prattles of product peril..." "Constraints weave their wary web of closure..."

Are you looking for Shakespeare, or Lewis Carrol-esque Jabberwocky? :-)

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.
