Thanks Roger -- there's so much to learn, but that makes it all the more exciting -- Max

I also suggest getting a good grounding (no pun intended!) in sensors, actuators, field instrumentation and field wiring (both direct and field bus.) Sorry, out of touch on books... I learned the theory years ago via Bellman, Tou, Kuo, Astrom, et al, and the instrument practice though ISA standards and years in industry. Good luck! Roger

There seem to be a bunch of books out there -- but they don't seem to get very good reviews -- also some of them are mega expansive -- I don't want to spend $100+ on a book unless it really is the right book for the job ... help! :-)

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST
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.
