@R. Colin Johnson: thanks for the note. It would have been nice to have a summary of other competing products (instead of being ADI-centric! Not that I don't like ADI, a fine components company!). The accelerometer seems like a nice version of ruggedized products, a good step indeed for ruggedized MEMS. But the 13-by-8-by-2mm package seems huge! I have used smaller ones from Endevco (non-MEMS version) for similar applications. Hi temp, hi-Rel, ruggedized versions don't enjoy the volume benefits of their commercial cousins, so I would argue the non-MEMS versions of accelerometers can handily beat the ruggedized MEMS versions in price/performance.

Does anyone know what kind of temperatures are found in deep rigs or excavation?

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.
