RL78 Target

The RL78 is an interesting choice for the reference design target. If I remember correctly, this MCU has a special Snooze Mode that puts the device into a low power mode that can handle simple interface requirements without CPU overhead. Maybe this mode is being used to reduce power even more than standard low power techniques?

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST
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.
