I really am excited about the 2.5D IC stuff – in the case of Altera, I'm sure they will be talking to their customers to see what the first offerings should be. I will be really interested to find out what the customers asking for. Will it be FPGA + Memory? How about FPGA + high-end A/D Converters? Or what about FPGA + RF chip (or maybe FPGA + RF-enabled microcontroller)... Does anyone else have any ideas here?

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.
