The time between a request for something and the time it must be in-place and functioning correctly is brutal and unforgiving in the racing field, because the race starts even if you are not ready. So if some need is found during the Friday warm-ups and the Saturday race, the time to engineer, design, build, debug, and install a product is sort of limited. But it is a thrill to be part of a winning team.

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.
