DesignNews Article: HiFive-Unleashed Expansion Board Opens Door For RISC-V PCs

The HiFive Unleashed Expansion Board, released by Microsemi, offers developers the potential to build personal computers around open-source RISC-V processors.

SiFive’s HiFive Unleashed, a development board based on the open-source RISC-V architecture, is getting an upgrade that could attract personal computer developers—and someday even makers and hobbyists—to open-source hardware. Semiconductor company Microsemi has released an expansion board that allows developers to add custom peripherals to the board via PCIe, USB, and other connections. This opens the window for the potential of personal computers to be built around the HiFive Unleashed, creating a PC with an open-source CPU at its core.
