In 1980 I was a Stirling engine designer for Stirling Power Systems in Ann Arbor Mi. We didn't have solar power then, it would have helped to justify the capital investment to buy such a system. We were there to do the same thing, use Detroit manufacturing knowhow to lower the cost. Still makes sense.

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.
