A quick calculation using the 1000amps and the 1ma or so rds-on shows why todays hybrids use higher voltage batteries. A new hiV battery standard will enable hybrids really take off. We should be able to go to COSTCO or Walmart and have our 400V battery replaced.

combined with micro-flywheels like used in race cars now can double this 5 to 10% because wasted no load power as one comes to a stop can be stored. Also air storage can be cheaper and lighter doing the same as the flywheel. less electronics but need a storage tank. needs to be included in frame design to not take a weight hit.

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.
