It would be nice if somewhere they would show a graph of spectral response! Or detectivity even. Throwing out numbers like "100 times more sensitive" is marketing poop in the absence of more data. After all, regular silicon in its peak quantum efficiency range is already almost as good as it can be, that is, approaching a quantum efficiency of 100%.

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.
