I wonder just how much time is spent in standby, for example in your smart phone? Even though it is not being actively used it is still "connected" and the wireless is running at some rate with the needed processor overhead. It sounds like a neat idea but I am wondering just how much it will save in real world mobile applications...

For Low Power RAM needs, FRAM instead used widely with a better performance for embedded systems, it can retain data with No Power Supply, No Refresh, No Clock is needed. It is RAM and non-volatile. Toshiba's next aim for SRAM must be a new non volatile structured SRAM.

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.
