Seems telling that there has not been a comment to this report. It's certainly good that EE Times recorded the agreement, but the agreement feels like Rambus doesn't get much more than face-saving closure with ST Micro. Rambus does get access to ST's 2xnm node but they seem to have essentially paid for that with future use rights for ST on its memory and interface IP as well as the interesting crypto stuff.

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 todayís commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
