I love how this site documents almost everything with regards to engineering, but at the same time it means that I sometimes get confused looking at the infographics in these articles. It would be great if a more lay man way of explaining things is used. Alex - http://www.cavalok.com

Those graphics do look impressive. 70% power consumption difference against a PIC microcontroller?!!! I suppose now with hybrid vehicles (or all-electric vehicles) power consumption is critical in the automobile. But I think that is too much of a difference… I wonder about the conditions used for measuring the power consumption among the devices… and are the compared devices used for the same applications?

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.
