Rambus, you've convinced me. What the world needs is an electric guitar, the entire face of which is an iPad-like display device, under control of a computer that can hear the music being played. In a dark music hall, that would be spectacular!

Hi, Kinnar. I am sorry that I didn't make it clear in the story. The Rambus engineers in Brecksville normally make LED technologies for back-lit displays for laptops and advance lighting fixtures. As you may recall, GE Lighting, a unit of the General Electric Company's appliances and lighting business, has a licensing agreement with Rambus for the use of Rambus' lighting patents, reference designs and manufacturing process know-how. So, this guitar stunt is for charity purposes. Rambus is well into the LED business.

It is great designs, with equal illumination of the lights from led behind the screen. But this giant company is going to use this great invention for illuminating Guitars only? They should look forward towards increasing the affordability of the LED backlit LCDs.

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.
