When selecting Netflix streaming movies from our Wii gaming console we have to move closer to the TV than the chair we are sitting in order to get the jittery cursor under control. A minor annoyance, sure, but a design mistake I would not like to see repeated in this generation of MEMS-based remote controls.

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.
