i agree an oscilloscope is the best friend of a hardware engineer. Many harware issues get resolved quickly if monitored correctly on the scope. but you need to have patience to debug the issue and analyze waveforms one by one.

Thanks for sharing real-time challenges faced and the lessons learned from the solutions to those problems. A general suggestion...this article would have been as attractive as its title if this had some pictures about the circuits and waveform accompanying the words explaining the issue and the solution.

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.
