In addition to "the end-game is to reduce their cost per lumen," a better pay off is increasing the lumens/watt even at the current price roadmaps. I hope IMI accomplishes that! MP Divakar

Sounds like a great approach. Could they do the same thing for solar cell production? We keep hearing about breakthrough technologies - what is needed is a way to carry the designs through the manufacturing process and determine where (if anywhere) the issues are.

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.
