@Sanjib.Acharya -- Organic LED's are used extensively in displays and have been commercially available for quite some time. Polymer (organic) flexible solar cells are being actively researched and show promise, but I don't believe they are currently commercially available.

Very interesting! Are the components such as LEDs, displays and solar cells made out of the conductive polymers commercially available? Could somebody point me to the website of a company which makes such components out of organic semiconductors? What are the advantages of the organic semiconductors vs. the traditional semiconductors?

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.
