I once had a class where they made great emphasis on the reuse of modules as part of a good defined architecture. However it was referring to hardware. Taking this to the software side must be good also. Actually I can already think of how to implement it on my company. A knowledge base portal focused on reusable code is a good process improvement idea. Though it crosses my mind that perhaps applying this to the firmware development might be a little more difficult since sometimes firmware tends to be monolithic… the smaller the device the more unique perhaps and as a consequence, it’s easier to have developers trying to author every little letter in their source code.

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.
