The principal reason why we have not been able to use Nordic in many custom designs is the lack of RSSI or other technique to get a rough indicator of distance. I'm quite sure many other sensor network and RFID companies think the same. Both ZigBee and Bluetooth offer RSSI. If Nordic could find a way of offering this, there are an enormous amount of new applications waiting.

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.
