Open Source Trends Leveraging RISC-V Technology
Chair:
Alessandro Piovaccari - Silicon Labs, Austin, TX
Organizer:
Rick O'Connor - OpenHW Group, Ottawa, ON, Canada
Special/Invited Session
The electronics industry is embracing open-source processor technologies like RISC-V at an unprecedented rate. This creates a need to develop a deep ecosystem to support the adoption of the RISC-V ISA. This includes various components including processor implementations, verification suites, software middleware, stacks, and tools - all aligned to move the architecture forward. In this session we will discuss two communities that are driving this technology forward; the CHIPS Alliance and the Open Hardware Group. In addition, we will provide an industry update on the incorporation of RISC-V technology into microcontroller applications.
