Great MCU but really like the Harmony story too

Hey Max, I really liked the features of the MCU too, great core performance, 28Msample/s ADC, crypto engine, and field upgradability via 2MBytes of internal flash, but I was also excited by MPLAB Harmony effort that Microchip co-announced with the 'MZ 32.

This is an Integrated Software Framework for PIC32 that essentially integrates the licensing, resale, and support of both Microchip as well as third-party middleware, drivers, libraries and RTOSes.

I like this bringing together of an ecosystem so developers don't have to spend half their time looking for compatible code and paying licence fees and get off the ground quicker - big deal these days (or any day).

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.
