Some memory is not meant to be stored for a long time, but is supposed to be overwritten frequently (as in SRAM or DRAM). Other memory is meant to be stored indefinitely, but may not be read frequently (as in the SSD) or is read frequently (as in XiP or boot-up). The inherent conflicts of these requirements rules out the attractiveness of a memory that appears to satisfy all of them.

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.
