Yay! Another voice of common sense rises up in the multicore hype arena. "The barriers are high, especially in software" - have to agree with this. The core problem all along is that multicore does not work as a silicon solution, its only half a solution. And the silicon vendors, Intel included even, have gone far to fast for the software ecosystem to keep up. I also agree that the solutions are highly fragmented at the moment, and will remain so, until some sanity arises as to where multicore truly offers value in embedded, and as the market definition narrows, the software ecosystem will get a chance to focus and then we'll start to see complete solutions, hardware+software in harmony.

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.
