I remember way back in the mists of time when I first heard the terms top-down and bottom-up design. Of course in those days we were still doing everything by hand -- I would never have dreamed of tools like the ones that are available today!

One of the advantages of FPGA design is that you don;t need an ASIC style design flow. Even with large devices. The ASIC guys will try and convince you that a big FPGA is really an ASIC to sell you their more expensive tools. I'm not ready to buy their argument yet. How about some real world examples from several happy customers? That might get my interest...

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.
