Just a point of clarification; the term "advertising" is a Bluetooth SIG/Spec term and does not refer to commercial advertising. It might be best to substitute the word "broadcasting" as this is essentially what these reference designs do; they transmit information (compliant with Bluetooth SIG specifications) without regard to which or how many devices can or want to hear what they are transmitting. As mentioned in the article, this is similar to the way radio and broadcast TV operate.

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.
