Clap clap clap!! Having spent a chunk of my engineering career on several, long-term projects that didn't see the light of day during my tenure, I can't imagine anything more rewarding than to see the successful launch of your product--into space, no less.

@Kfield, Thank you there was a large team of people much smarter than I working on it. It does feel pretty amazing to be honest, especially watching the launch last week. 

This is the third generation processor, I am currently leading the development of the fourth and that is a step change again in performance and approach. It is a little annoying I cannot openly talk about how we do it but that is our competative edge ;)

You think you have it bad -- imagine how frustrating it is for me to not have enough free time to show you all how to do it better :-)

I know, I know, but when I visit the UK my mom won't let me out of her sight ... when I do get to visit your company I'll make sure to bring my trusty soldering iron :-)

You know being able to solder is rare in engineers these days ;)

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.
