Isn't 0.18 micron a tad old in these days, when competition is moving to 90 nm embedded flash. Anyway, the key to successful touchscreen design is using the right touch algorithms. Remains to be seen how this works.

Cool product 32-bit controller from a multi-dimensional cooperative effort. Let's hope it gets incorporated in volume in tablets, if the power dissipated is low enough, which it should be if it occupies the area of off-the-shelf popular 8-bit 8051.

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.
