Car customising enthusiasts would surely enjoy the new Led lightings. Being small, they take up less space, therefore opening up more possibilities for other types of lighting and car parts. Night vision devices, multi coloured lights are just the beginning. Being more cost efficient is another plus point that they would not miss. Thomas - http://www.carid.com

Another benefit of using LEDs is that they are energy efficient. Most of them require less energy to achieve the same luminosity. Using up less battery opens up possibilities to have other electronics in the vehicle.

Let us all hope that the era of LED path-lighting will be able to avoid the dazzling of oncoming drivers that the xenon lamps do so very well. If this requires severe federal regulations and restrictions, so much the better. The lies and misrepresentations about the lack of problems with the present HID lighting systems seem to indicate a lack of concern for oncoming driver safety. Of course, LED lighting may have a negative impact on the sales of replacement headlamps, but that is OK.

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.
