Innovation has accelerated with the rapid development of the RISC-V ecosystem
The RISC-V Foundation, a non-profit corporation controlled by its members to drive a new era of processor innovation via the adoption and implementation of the free and open RISC-V instruction set architecture (ISA), today announced that the RISC-V Foundation’s membership has surpassed 235 organizations, individuals, academics and universities from 27 countries and six continents around the world. The RISC-V ecosystem has experienced explosive growth since the RISC-V Foundation’s inception in 2015, with more than 100 percent membership growth over the past year. There has been an increased commercial adoption and a growing number of implementations, including an expanding footprint in China and the wider APAC region.
Last year the RISC-V Foundation held a number of successful events across Asia, North America and Europe, including the RISC-V Summit in Santa Clara, Calif. where more than 1,100 attendees from over 20 countries gathered to discuss RISC-V implementations and share findings. The next RISC-V Foundation event, the RISC-V Workshop Taiwan, will be held in Hsinchu, Taiwan from March 12-13, 2019. The RISC-V Workshop Zurich will take place in Zurich, Switzerland from June 11-13, 2019.
RISC-V (pronounced “risk-five”) is a free and open ISA enabling a new era of processor innovation through open standard collaboration. Founded in 2015, the RISC-V Foundation comprises more than 235 members building the first open, collaborative community of software and hardware innovators powering a new era of processor innovation. Born in academia and research, the RISC-V ISA delivers a new level of free, extensible software and hardware freedom on architecture, paving the way for the next 50 years of computing design and innovation.
The RISC-V Foundation, a non-profit corporation controlled by its members, directs the future development and drives the adoption of the RISC-V ISA. With support from the Linux Foundation, members of the RISC-V Foundation have access to and participate in the development of the RISC-V ISA specifications and related HW / SW ecosystem.
