Actually, I do have to wave a little flag at one point. In this release Altera say that they are "the first to roll out all 28 nm FPGA product families in production." Now, I may be wrong here, but I have a feeling that Altera's 28nm SoC FPGAs are not in production yet... I will report further if I hear differently...

Now, all credit to Altera for this -- they certainly do have some impressive technology. It's not my fault that as soon as I see "Forbes" I'm reminded that these are the folks who took the time to compile a list of the twenty-five largest FICTIONAL companies in history ( http://bit.ly/RN5MRL ). Also, the little rascals ranked Huntsville, Alabama (the place I currently hang my hat) as #4 in the list of "America's Geekiest Cities" ( http://bit.ly/TqAW3F ) ... OK, I'll give them that one :-)

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST
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.
