Last week I attended the inaugural Indian RISC-V Workshop in Chennai, hosted by the Indian Institute of Technology Madras (IIT).
For myself and my colleague, UltraSoC CTO Gajinder Panesar, our goals were to understand more about the state of the Indian semiconductor market and to connect with partners and prospects, as well as enjoying the culture and eating some great Indian food. We managed to tick all those boxes, and more!
There was an energy and excitement in the air at the event, a sense of a community on the cusp of something big, something important, a spirit of collaboration as we build something new together. The Indian government has strongly endorsed the RISC-V standard, which is being embraced not only in the Indian academic world but also the governmental technology units (defense, space etc.) and the rapidly growing local semiconductor industry which boasts a healthy design service sector and a vibrant start-up community with particular emphasis on the IoT space.
