How To Get Started With RISC-V-Based Microcontrollers | Jacob Beningo, DigiKey

Designers are under constant pressure to innovate yet keep their intellectual property (IP) secret, while also lowering power consumption and cost. This made the RISC-V open-source hardware instruction set architecture (ISA) interesting for designers of processors for mobile applications. Now that RISC-V is an option for microcontrollers, designers of embedded systems and consumer devices need a quick on-ramp to start their own RISC-V designs.
