SiFive was founded by the creators of the free and open RISC-V architecture as a reaction to the end of conventional transistor scaling and escalating chip design costs. By leveraging the power of open-source and agile hardware design, SiFive reduces the cost and time to harness the performance and energy-efficiency of customized silicon, enabling a wide range of applications from IoT to hyper-scale computing – all unified by the common RISC-V platform.
