Thanks Brian. We are looking forward to seeing lots of people at our suite at DAC to show how far we've come since the acquisition... Just a small clarification above, it is more accurate to say that there has been a dramatic reduction in the usefulness of *traditional* digital external instruments for ASIC/SoC debug, not *all* external instruments. In fact, the specialized instruments for these new, complex high-speed interfaces (like high-speed Scopes, BERTs, DDR and protocol analyzers) are even more critical than they were before. Tektronix continues innovate, and will continue to innovate, to lead the market in these very important areas. I'll be in our suite during most of the show, and I'd love to hear what you readers think about test and measurement of their ASIC and SoCs. - Brad Quinton

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.
