What a neat idea and great way to promote their products! I wish I could have been there and had the chance to compete!! Hopefully, there will be other locations for the training or the robot will be offered as a low cost kit. Freescale if you could take this nationwide it would be MUCH appreciated.

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.
