After attending several sessions and seeing the demonstrations in the show floor, I still stand firm with my belief system that: (DDR4 + SoC) = RIP There is no more room for DDR4 into SoC market, it will continue to be standard memory for Server and PCs in multi-drop buses for 2 or 3 chipsets. But the level of expertise require to design, bring up and validate DDR4 memory interface it far more complicated that any SoC interface out there (even harder than 10G-KR). I said this back in 2009 and I continue to stay firm on this matter. There is really no life for DDR4 in SoC other than Hype! This brings us to the key questions, what would all the Next Gen SoC use for external Memory interface? (reply if you think u know the answer!!)

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.
