Both Xilinx and Altera are putting great hopes on this 28nm node. Higher bandwidth and low power seem to the be the main selling points but what about programmer productivity? It seems to me that when it comes to this, progress is slow and fairly incremental. Component based design is fine but someone has to pay for the cost of the IPs.

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.
