I heard from the team at JEDEC Solid State Technology Association that it will be participating in the 2012 International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, Nevada.
On January 12, 2012 at 10AM the organization will be presenting a program called "Memory Matters: Memory Solutions for Consumer Products and Mobile Devices" in the Convention Center North Hall. The program will explore how technological advancements and new standards can enhance device performance, reduce power usage, and enable compact form factors. Speakers will include representative from Agilent, CST, Micron, and Samsung. You can follow this link to register.
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.
