Next Steps

  1. Please review the RISC-V Regulations and Articles links above.
  2. In the sign-up process, you will see indications of the Linux Foundation. Note that RISC-V has a relationship with LF to facilitate our member management and operations. Your RISC-V International membership does not enroll your organization as a member of the Linux Foundation – the RISC-V process only conveys membership in RISC-V International.
  3. Please note: If you are signing up as a Community Individual member, please use an email address that is not affiliated with any company or organization.
  4. Once you complete the steps for membership through the following link, a membership agreement will be electronically generated for your signature via Docusign. After you sign electronically, the membership agreement is routed to RISC-V International to countersign, and then Docusign will provide you with an electronic copy for your records. An invoice will be generated automatically.
  5. For existing RISC-V members, it is necessary to sign up for membership in the new organization: RISC-V International.  Existing members will not automatically be transitioned to the new RISC-V International. Once you complete the new sign-up process, your prior RISC-V membership will be terminated and replaced with your RISC-V International membership. Any membership dues paid on prior membership will be pro-rated and any remaining balance will be applied to your new membership, you’ll see this in the invoice sent after completion of sign-up. Please click on the appropriate link below for organization or individual membership.
  6. For new members, please click on the appropriate link below for organization or individual membership.
