Hackster.io Article: GigaDevice Unveils New RISC-V-Based GD32V Microcontroller

Several years ago China-based GigaDevice launched their GD32 microcontroller that took advantage of the ARB architecture and was compatible with STMicro’s STM32F103 microcontroller. The company is back with another GD32V series, only this time around they have dumped Arm in favor of RISC-V.article: https://blog.hackster.io/gigadevice-unveils-new-risc-v-based-gd32v-microcontroller-c0a2b147568b

A Look Back at the Evolution of RISC-V and a Peek at What’s Next from Krste Asanović

This post was written by Krste Asanović, Chairman of the Board of the RISC-V FoundationI still remember the first public RISC-V rollout at Hot Chips in August 2014, where our gaggle of Berkeley students and faculty wore bright blue RISC-V t-shirts and asked passerby to come see our demo silicon and grab a RISC-V button. The t-shirts are a little worse for wear, but the free and open RISC-V ISA…
