This may be a great improvement. However, the article seems to have some inconsistencies. The statement "Consumer Reports recommends lithium batteries in high-drain devices such as cameras and alkaline batteries in low-drain devices such as remote controls" I think refers to disposable lithium batteries, not rechargeable Li-ion batteries. Also, the statement "Additionally, using the acrylic S020 made it possible for high capacity retention - more than 500 cycles" seems odd; 500 cycles would not scratch the surface in an automotive application. Perhaps this is a misprint?

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.
