It is obvious that using a well designed inverter drive will improve efficiency of a product, but it is considerably less clear how adding a very large number of electronic components, all selected for minimum cost, assembled in the least expensive manner possible, and including an MCU having a large amount of code developed with the minimum possible cost, can be an improvement in reliability, unless the comparison is against a similar but more complex system. I was hoping for an article with more discussion of power inverters driving motors.

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.
