Interesting but there is still some challenges with integrating digital-rf-analog-antenna on single chip trade-offs such as speed, isolation issues.

Sounds good, Bill! Yes, the integration trend is subsuming the entire radio transceiver/computer known as the smart phone, not just the stuff in the silicon chip. I'm going to have to put this book on my short list, along with R.C. Hansen's book on a similar topic, Electrically Small, Superdirective, and Superconducting Antennas, which appears to be excellent. (I thumbed through it at the 2010 International Microwave Symposium a few months ago). I don't know if Volakis and company have a sense of humor, but Hansen does, a big plus in a subject like this that could be really dry.

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.
