Good article Rakesh, - just a small point, MPPT stands for Maximum Power Point Tracker, - first commercialised I believe by Stewart Watkinson (now deceased) of AERL, (Australian Energy Research Laboratories) from Queensland, Australia. Maximum Power Point Trackers are now used widely in the solar industry, particularly in colder climates.

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.
