The transition to SoC-based base stations may well be very important to achieve low cost infrastructure products. Operators do require macro-cells to be software upgradable, but this would generally add cost as the base station needs to be provisioned for updates to future revisions of the air interface standard. In practice, SoCs would be less capable of being upgradeable, but should provide a better cost point which is necessary for small cells.

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.
