Very Impressive Tools!

Wow! I've taken a look to the Protium platform and it's a really impressive tool!

When I was involved in ASIC design -- less than ten years ago --, I used Cadence products to design the layout, but I needed standard FPGA kits to test the HDL before getting into real custom silicon.

I would love to have the opportunity of using this fully integrated tool now!

Thsi class of tool really is amazing -- back in the mid 1980s the company I was working for developed a simple emulator / hardware accelerator -- but FPGAs had only just come on the scene and we never even thought of them in this context.

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.
