RISC-V (pronounced “risk-five”) is a new instruction set architecture (ISA) that was originally designed to support computer architecture research and education and is now set to become a standard open architecture for industry implementations under the governance of the RISC-V Foundation. The RISC-V ISA was originally developed in the Computer Science Division of the EECS Department at the University of California, Berkeley.

  • The RISC-V Memory Consistency Model April 22, 2017 Krste Asanović, Chairman, RISC-V FoundationMemory consistency models (MCMs) are known to flummox even experienced computer architects, so it is perhaps not surprising that recent news articles had some difficulty portraying the nuances behind recent findings by a team of Princeton researchers led by Professor Margaret Martonosi.  The RISC-V Foundation is publishing this article to help the RISC-V community understand the deeper implications of the Princeton study. Executive Summary The Princeton team…

  • RISC-V Enters Mainstream at Embedded World 2017 March 10, 2017 Berkeley, California – Over the last year the RISC-V architecture has evolved from an academic research interest to a mainstream embedded processor technology with a rich ecosystem and a fast-growing number of real-world implementations. As a sign of this progress, a number of companies will be demonstrating commercial implementations of RISC-V products next week at Embedded World 2017, the leading international trade fair for embedded systems (March 14-16, Nuremberg, Germany) https://www.embedded-world.de/enRISC-V…
