No wonder there are a lot of players in the semiconductor market. I hope there is more investment in this sector to reduce the capacity utilization. If capacity utilization stays this high, end products may remain relatively expensive.

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.
