I recall being in Italy about 10 years ago and someone was using their cell phone (IR?) to allow their laptop to acess data. Apparently this was quite common in Europe but never took off in North America. Currently, Android phones allow tethering and to be used as WiFi access points. There are even wireless routers which connect via USB data sticks.

The cost savings have the potential to reduce end user costs as well. A more significant development would be a cost effective means to enable laptop users to use their cell phones as a data link to the internet while traveling. Will this new technology help make that a more common and cost effective option?

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.
