It is not an issue of static or dynamic code analysis. You need to do both in order to verify that each processing thread gets access to the system components when they need them without interferring with the needs of the other threads to accomplish the same goal. Correct timing does not just happen, you have to understand the processing environment, the system environment, the signal acquisition dynamics and the reaction/presentation requirements. Until you know what is going on inside the box, you can have critical timing issues and not be aware that they exist. If you have nonreproduceable gremlins, it is usually an indicatiion that there is a timeing issue in your system. Thanks, DAB

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.
