Computer architecture research has a long history in the Berkeley EECS department, dating back to the CALDIC computer finished in 1951. Other notable computer architecture projects include Project Genie, RISC-I, RISC-II, SOAR, SPUR, RAID, VLSI-BAM, T0, NOW, IRAM, and RAMP. Berkeley computer architecture research has always emphasized construction of prototypes, and this continues to this day with multiple microprocessor tapeouts in advanced processes every year. All recent microprocessor designs have been based on the RISC-V instruction set and are implementing using the Chisel Hardware Description language, both developed at Berkeley.
