1st RISC-V Workshop Proceedings

January 14-15, 2015

Marriott Hotel, Monterey, CA


The goals of this workshop are to inform the community of recent activity in the various RISC-V projects underway around the globe and to build consensus on future steps in the RISC-V project, while the bootcamp provides an opportunity to learn about the existing RISC-V infrastructure from the RISC-V development team. The workshop and bootcamp will feature demos of multiple RISC-V silicon tapeouts as well as FPGA board designs and associated software tools.
