Electric vehicles are still around the corner, but sooner the percentage of EVs will actually go up and obviously there will be huge demand for automotive semiconductors.

I think most consumers don't look at the payback, just the MPG. When I last looked, you could buy a lot of gas for the price difference between a Volt and a Cruze.

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.
