In the past few years Open Source ISAs have generated an immense amount of interest in the semiconductor, IP, and systems industries. Advocates of open and well specified ISAs make a very compelling argument for driving the next generation of processing at all levels, server to edge. There are dozens of sources for acquiring processor IP, commercial and open source. There are commercial and open source development tools and infrastructure for supporting your own implementations. We have a plethora of papers about the promise of value. Where will there be real commercial success? Where are the production implementations that use open source or commercial offerings? Will RISC-V and Open MIPS be drivers for the IP industry and will the IP industry be able to drive Open MIPS and RISC-V to a dominant position?
