SPD is a method that is used by BIOS/boot firmware to identify the type of DRAM (in this case, DDR3 SDRAM) that is installed in the system. Memory modules (DIMMs, SODIMMs) always have a small EEPROM device on them that contains data identifying the type of memory chips on the memory module. SPD governs the organization of the data on that EEPROM. This data is read by BIOS/boot firmware at boot time and is used to configure the chipset/memory controller.

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.
