RISC-V Opportunities and Challenges in an “Open” Technology Society
Ed Sperling - Semiconductor Engineering, San Jose, CA
RISC-V is a free and open ISA enabling a new era of processor innovation through open standard collaboration. But what are the “hidden” costs of an open ISA that is easily extensible? Are there fragmentation issues both in hardware and software? How will the industry control undisciplined hacking? Will certain interest groups “go rogue”? These are some of the questions this RISC-V panel will discuss.
