Why limit the white spectrum to 400-800 MHz? Would not wider range be better?

A wider range would be better, but the product would certainly be more expensive. The wider the frequency range, the more difficult the RF design. Receiver technlogy in this band is very common and hence very cheap; I can't speak for transmitter technology, of course.

There are many wireless technologies that cover wider frequency range, for example Ultra Wide Band (UWB) can cover 3-10 Ghz range...sure, the design is more expensive but clearly it can be done...Kris

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.
