This tool is expensive one. Although they lease their EDA for a long term, like 1~3 years, it costs about a multiple of 10k, not including a technical support. While EDA market is down a lot compared to 2010 year, they are reporting a profit, if not a small loss. The H/W development market is getting a lot better in major hub locations over US. I hope it keeps in that way for all of us.
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.
