Consultation workshop on open-source hardware and RISC-V

June 17, 2021 @ 9:00 am - 1:00 pm CEST

About the consultation workshop

On behalf of the European Commission the three Industrial Associations AENEAS, ARTEMIS, and EPoSS will organise a consultation workshop on open-source hardware and RISC-V on June 17, 09.00 – 13.00 hrs.

The Union’s digital sovereignty depends or our capacity to design, develop and produce processors that underpin most of the key current and future value chains, from high end supercomputers, cloud and edge computing, cars and connected devices to the smallest embedded systems and sensors in our everyday life. Currently, Europe heavily depends on processor suppliers outside the Union. The Union needs to guarantee an autonomous processor supply in Europe within a reasonable time. Solutions based on open-source hardware (including RISC-V) are one of the most credible alternatives identified so far.

The consultation workshop aims to investigate research challenges on open-source hardware that could be included as Work Programme topics in the first calls of the KDT JU.

This consultation workshop is a first step in a process that will ultimately lead to a concrete roadmap for strengthening the European open-source hardware ecosystem. A working group with a small number of industry experts (5-8) will be established to define European high-level strategy for an open-source hardware ecosystem, addressing objectives, scope, mapping of current activities, a draft technology implementation roadmap, and the investments/resources/activities needed. The working group will develop a concrete roadmap for strengthening the European open source hardware ecosystem, including all additional elements required for the design of processors, such as memory interfaces, interconnects, peripherals, EDA tools, etc. The roadmap that will be the ultimate result of the working group will become a basis for work to be done under KDT, but also under other initiatives, such as EuroHPC.
