Here is the list of top 5 design articles on the RF & Microwave Designline as voted by your page views. If you missed any of these, now might be a good time to check them out. As a side note, #5 in the list, from Nordic Semiconductor, just posted last week. Feel free to comment on these and keep the conversation going.
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.
