Emerson Network Power and Mercury Computer Systems, Inc. have announced that they will collaborate to promote interoperability on open standards-based subsystems for military and aerospace applications. The alliance seeks to provide interoperability between the companies’ range of embedded computing solutions to enable defense customers to migrate away from proprietary closed architectures to flexible open solutions, reducing risk and lowering development and deployment costs.
The alliance combines Mercury’s high performance signal and image processing, open standards hardware and software and systems integration and services with Emerson Network Power’s standards-based embedded computing technology for the telecommunications, industrial automation, aerospace/defense and medical markets.

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.
