Excellent series of articles. However, there is no mention of advanced thermal management materials (my specialty), which have thermal conductivities up to 1700 W/m-K and low coefficients of thermal expansion and low densities. All are important in meeting size, weight and power requirements. They are widely used in aerospace/defense and commercial applications, including enclosures. If anyone would like papers on the subject, send me an email at

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.
