With the build-up to the RISC-V Workshop in Barcelona, and our continued partnership with Microsemi to elevate Renode as the industry’s tool of choice for RISC-V development, we are happy to say that the announced support for multi-core 64-bit, Linux-enabled RISC-V targets – along with a multitude of other new features – is now available in Renode’s milestone 1.4 release.
RISC-V – Freedom and Unleashed, and anything you’d like
Through our collaboration with Microsemi, SiFive and other RISC-V Foundation members, Renode 1.4 greatly expands its support for the open source RISC-V ISA. On top of the previously released Mi-V platform, 1.4 adds both SiFive’s Freedom E310 32-bit RISC-V CPU and, even more importantly, the acclaimed HiFive Unleashed 64-bit multi-core development board. In other words, you can grab a Renode package right from GitHub and run unmodified RISC-V Linux for the HiFive Unleashed with Ethernet support, GPIOs and other basic functionalities. Or – that’s the magic of Renode – you can take these CPUs and peripheral building blocks and set up your own purpose-built, customizable RISC-V SoC that’s not even there yet, writing and testing complex software before silicon is available.
