I tend to disagree about "runs times are measured in minutes and not hours" statement. Simulating many design types running even on a mid-size FPGA with low-cost ModelSim PE/DE can take hours. Upgrading to ModelSim SE or VCS can improve the performance ~2-10 times. Another option is co-simulation on an off-the-shelf dev board, which can speed up simulation 10+ times. Still cheaper than $64K product, though.

I agree that $64K is a lot of money... but I still think that their technology was pretty clever ... It would be great to hear from someone who had actually used GateRocket's stuff...

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.
