In any system more connections means less reliability of the overall system because the connectors are the most nuisance causing elements in any electrical system. In case of EVs if an attempt is made to integrate the drive electronics in the electric motor itself then reliability of the EV power electronics can be improved manyfold, in my opinion.

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.
