From June 11 to 13, the RISC-V Foundation organizes a RISC-V workshop in Zurich, at the ETH. It takes place in one of the most important RISC-V development centers.
Open source hardware predicts professionals a bright future. The RISC-V Foundation even speaks of a development with disruptive potential. It is intended to fundamentally change the market for processor IP. Given the recent licensing disputes between Apple and Qualcomm, the idea of using open source hardware in SoCs may seem like a release. In any case, the success stories of RISC V-IP vendors and announcements by semiconductor manufacturers are fueling interest in the RISC-V license-free instruction set architecture .
The RISC-V workshop in June at ETH Zurich offers a good opportunity to take a closer look at RISC-V and get to know the experts. After all, the ETH with the Institute for Integrated Systems – especially the Department of Digital Circuits and Systems and Prof. Luca Benini – is an important development site for RISC-V processors. The PULP processor platform developed here (PULP: Parallel Ultra Low Power) was designed as a cluster – with many small energy-efficient RISC-V cores.
