It will be interesting to see how they perform against FPGAs.

Looks like an interesting and bold move! I would be curious to see just how much of the base station design could be integrated into the new chips. Given the statements from the article, is there a real opportunity for some vendor to provide a best overall "system solution" chip by adding the needed features currently supported by the FPGAs? It would seem to be a big win, with such a large market waiting for a one chip (or maybe small chip set) solution that would be lower cost, smaller, and lower power needs. Just wondering if it is possible and if someone is already running down that path....

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.
