You would think that mentioning which 32 RISC microcontroller core is inside the chip would be important enough to mention.

NXP bought Jennic which was a UK based company. I guess Jennic was based in Sheffield?

Sorry, but what class of processors is this processor in? 256KB of flash isn't best in class for embedded 32bit processors these days.

256kB is plenty for the ZigBee and JenNet-IP applications this is targeted for. No need to add extra cost to the device by providing more memory than needed.

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.
