RISC-V Member Day 2020

In place of our usual in-person member day in conjunction with RISC-V Summit, this year we will hold it virtually. Member Day will contain updates on RISC-V, updates on the working group activities, and time for networking.


The third annual RISC-V Summit will highlight the continued rapid expansion of the RISC-V ecosystem, presenting both commercial offerings and exciting open-source developments. The comprehensive program will feature keynotes from industry pioneers as well as thought-provoking panel discussions. Network with thought-leaders, technology companies, and researchers spearheading the adoption of this evolutionary change in the silicon market. Newcomers to RISC-V, as well as the seasoned developers who are interested in broadening their toolsets, are invited to choose from the broad range of tutorials.
