The "as low as 7mW" of power isn't that impressive to me. It's all about what it can do in 7mW that is important. I much prefer a mW/DMIP metric or something similar... Maybe we could get a standard set of applications defined and spec battery life for each- that would be really good...

5 dollars for an ARM microprocessor ready for 3D graphics and such a low power consumption! Wow! That is good news! And its part of an open source hardware development board? The BugleBoard? That’s double the fun! Let’s see what application specific reference design TI does come about. Though 995 usd isn’t cheap it ought to be worth once getting in to the mass production stage with more than 100,000 units to meet the 4.99 per chip price. I wonder if Wifi-Direct will catch up… considering is a straight competitor of Bluetooth and being Bluetooth so well positioned now… I think not. What do you think?

At Critical Link we see a lot of movement towards using processors like this in the Industrial space. Companies are moving towards putting more and more rich user interfaces on their measurement and control devices. Tom Catalino http://www.MityDSP.com

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.
