Antmicro, a high-tech company focusing on introducing open technologies to modern edge computing systems and RISC-V ecosystem leader, has announced today adding support for the groundbreaking Linux-enabled PolarFire SoC revealed earlier by Microchip Technology in the revolutionary open source Renode software development framework. The announcement comes during the inaugural RISC-V Summit currently taking place in Santa Clara, California.
Microchip PolarFire SoC is a new class of SoC FPGAs that combines the industry’s lowest power mid-range PolarFire FPGA family with a complete microprocessor subsystem based on the open, royalty-free RISC-V ISA.
In a move that is the result of the ongoing strategic cooperation between Antmicro and Microsemi (a subsidiary of Microchip) around the latter’s Mi-V ecosystem, the new PolarFire SoC architecture is made available for developers worldwide in Renode today to accelerate the practical adoption of Linux-enabled platforms that are deemed crucial for the industry’s migration to RISC-V.
