EENews Europe Article: X-FAB Silicon Foundries Tapes-Out Open-Source RISC-V MCU

Together with crowd-sourcing IC platform partner Efabless Corporation, X-FAB Silicon Foundries has announced the first-silicon availability of the Efabless RISC-V System on Chip (SoC) reference design.

This open-source semiconductor project went from design start to tape-out in less than three months using the Efabless design flow based on open-source tools. The mixed-signal SoC, called Raven, is based on the community developed ultra-low power PicoRV32 RISC-V core.  Efabless has bench-tested the Raven at 100MHz, and based on simulations the design should be able to operate at up to 150MHz.
