Very impressive. I'd like to see inside their wind tunnel and see their 0.5 scale cars! Perhaps I could afford one of those!

Hey, HM, see Rick's links, above! He spoke to the technical teams involved... unfortunately, I only got a quick tour of the museum.

Hey Rick, those are awesome! Sorry, I would have linked to them initially had i known! :) There is nothing sexier than Ferrari in my opinion, so I'm super jealous that you got to go to the F1 event!! Awesome sauce!

@Sylvie: Very engrossing story. Can you cover little more about electronics they use in car and for testing?

Hi Sylvie, Readers of this article would probably be interested in a story I did for Design News awhile back when they invited us to cover the introduction of their latest Formula 1 car at the time. I got to talk with the technical staff about how Ferrari approaches crafting a Formula 1 car: http://www.designnews.com/document.asp?doc_id=216541 The Formula 1 car debut event held at their private Fiorano racetrack proving ground was also a unique event, blending style with technology: http://www.designnews.com/document.asp?doc_id=226247 I was then able to actually get a tour inside the production car factory, usually only given to those who have ponied up to buy a car: http://www.designnews.com/document.asp?doc_id=223247 Cheers, Rick

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.
