Flawed business model, why was that not detected in the program analysis phase? All those satellites launched, phones distributed. We cannot live on exciting engineering without business analysis. Our revenue and money mistakes start with the BU leadership and marketing teams and if you smell smoke please speak up.

Thanks Brian for reminding me of Iridium. Those were some of the most exciting years of my career. Flawed business model, but nevertheless a fantastic engineering achievement.

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.
