RISC-V Foundation at Design Automation Conference (DAC) Proceedings

RISC-V Foundation at Design Automation Conference (DAC) Proceedings

June 24 – 27, 2018

The 54th Design Automation Conference (DAC) was held at the Moscone Center West, in San Francisco from June 25 – 25, 2018. DAC 2018 demonstrated the exciting momentum of the RISC-V ecosystem. The RISC-V Foundation booth featured member companies Imperas Software, Microsemi, SiFive, Syntacore, UltraSoC and Western Digital. Throughout the event, the RISC-V Foundation hosted panels and speaking  sessions, held a scavenger hunt and hosted networking happy hours. 

DAC invited the Foundation to present the RISC-V Ecosystem – Reshaping the CPU Landscape workshop on how the free and open RISC-V ISA is creating a paradigm shift in industry, reinvigorating semiconductor design and reshaping traditional business models. The workshop featured sessions from RISC-V Foundation Executive Director Rick O’Connor, Markus Levy and Alex Badicioiu at NXP, and Palmer Dabbelt at SiFive.

Rick O’Connor at the RISC-V Foundation also participated in the panel Core Choices: How To Navigate The Brave New World Of IP, which was hosted by Junko Yoshida at EE Times. David Patterson, vice chair of the RISC-V Foundation’s Board of Directors, presented his keynote A New Golden Age For Computer Architecture: Domain Specific Accelerators and Open RISC-V to DAC attendees. Other sessions at DAC also featured members of the RISC-V ecosystem including Krste Asonvic at SiFive, and Abbas Rehimi, Davide Rossi and Luca Benini at ETH Zurich.
