OK, go for it. SuVolta is essentially claiming a third alternative to SOI and FINFets. That's big. Love to hear others weigh in on the viability of that claim.

Rick, yes, I am totally independent of Su Volta...they make very impressive claims, but we all know how tough it is to come up with something really innovative after 50+ years of silicon developments...I have not analyzed the claims, would be happy to, my PhD was in MOSFET modeling afterall, but someone would have to pay me for that service ;-)...alternatively we can ask Ashok Kapoor (author of the talk in Whistler) to comment...Kris

@iniewski: Are you independent of them? If so what do you or anyone else who looking through these sldies, think of their technology and chances?

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST
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.
