FPGA prototyping - mine is bigger than yours. :-)

Great article, Lauro. But I wouldn't discount FPGA prototyping systems just yet. S2C, Inc. makes a prototyping solution built upon the latest generation of Xilinx FPGAs. A single-board system can accomodate up to 80 million gates, with multi-board configurations capable of gate counts over half a billion. It's also faster than emulation, is easier to debug than you think, and costs a fraction of those big emulators. S2C gives the big boys a run for their money - and takes less of yours while doing it.

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.
