LDO is still sexy. It is so simple to use and so stable. More to note is that linear regulator is still the cleanest power supply we have so far. We are seeing more low noise LDO showing up recently. Some claims to have only 6uVrms which is a bit crazy! I hope they really perform as what they advertise. One interesting LDO to note is the parallable LDO from Linear Technology. With the LDO tied together, people can then solve a lot of heat sinking issues. I hope they can offer the negative version ASAP.

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.
