Agreed, the MFF SIM makes for more reliable hardware. But surface-mount assembly is permanent. When you buy the SIM from one particular network operator, like Deutsche Telekom, you are locked in. In theory, it should be possible to buy a 'blank' SIM, embed it in your device, and then program it with the network access credentials for any Mobile Network Operator. But as usual, commercial paranoia means that this will probably never be allowed.

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.
