The ULP Advisor is an excellent tool. It can be extended as new techniques and functions are developed and the code developer can focus on the application code, and avoid needing to dig into the details of the hardware implications. If these is a way for users to develop their own add-on code (can we say open source) that could be included in cuter releases that would be amazing.

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.
