I evaluated Altium a while ago & thought that it was pretty powerful, pretty complicated, pretty darn hard on the CPU, and very hard on the wallet. I'm glad to see Altium dropping the prices to a more competitive & "reasonable" level. They always had (and still do have) the right to charge what they wish... and the consumer has the right to vote with his dollars/pounds/Euros/whatever. Anyway, now with more competitive prices, at least Altium may snag a few additional purchases from folks who can't push through a $15K P.O., but can at least get approval for a $4K P.O.

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.
