I have almost no idea what this announcement is about. It looks like an untouched copy of a nerd's press release with no explanation of any of the acronyms. What is a 'space vector modulated direct torque control' solution? What's a BLDC or a PMSM? I consider myself a fairly intelligent and well-read electronics engineer, but I prefer articles that actually add something to my sum total of knowledge. It begs the question, what did the 'author' actually contribute to this?

Despite Google and Wikipedia, Chas56 has a point. On any other day, I would not have time to research "space vector modulated direct torque control".

You have a point I'm only 2/3 right

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST
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.
