Another technical success for NASA. I admit I was dubious of the complex landing system employed, but now that we know it works, I can see it used in many applications here on earth. I just want to remind the nonbelievers that every dollar invested in NASA returns $26 dollars in return as the ideas circulate and create new technologies and applications. Just a thought.

Yes, and they also deliver heroes and some very-much-needed pride.

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.
