Where can you buy this device? I have been calling and emailing Oregon Scientific, IDT, and Nordic Semiconductor to pinpoint this device so we can purchase them...but no one answers any of the phones, no phone messages are returned, and no emails are responded to. Help!? I have checked www.oscientific.com, www2.oregonscientific.com, www.oregonscientific.com and have found nothing.

I thought why IDT is doing blood pressure stuff. This IDT is NOT the LSI company (Integrated Device Technology)...hong-kong based consumer electronics company, mostly producing battery driven small LCD devices such as kitchen timer or pedometers.

4-6 months of carrying an equipment with 4 AA battery seems a bit too much. If it worked with with 1-2 CR2032, the device would be more appealing. On the other hands, measuring blood pressure requires pressure being apply to your arm, how does the device work? Continuous pressure seems to be hurtful to most people.

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.
