This is a great move. It involves solvable materials problems and huge market potential. Solid state lighting also avoids CFL's dirty little mercury problem, which can only be swept under the rug for so long.

Eventually, LED light price will come down significantly. The main area of concern will be CCT and CRI for LED lights. If they can match that of conventional lamp, it will be winner.

LED lighting has gone a push. What's the most challenging area of it other than cost reduction? Would you, as a consumer, switch to LED lighting from CFL if LED lasts 5 times more than CFL while costs 5 times more? In another words, the reduced electric bill is what you will gain.

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.
