@Netteligent: HP Labs is indeed working on the demo of an all optical bus where at each mirroring intersection, a predefined % of reflectance is captured by a MEMS mirror taking the signal to the destination. The % reflectance is set by the number of taps on the optical bus. There were a number of things said in that keynote that are feasible but I remain skeptical about the timeline when products are likely to emerge. A number of companies have saying stuff about 1.5Trillion networked devices and this remains to be seen. @RickMerrit: it was good to see you at the event and I enjoyed reading the report. MP Divakar

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.
