What Membership level is right for me?

Organization: Premier members have a seat on the Board of Directors, the Technical Steering Committee, and enhanced communications coverage via RISC-V content and social.

Organization: Strategic members are organizations that are integrating RISC-V and want to have their voice considered in the RISC-V technical direction.

Organization: Community members are academic institutions and non-profits that are integrating RISC-V and want to have their voice considered in the RISC-V technical direction.

Individual members do RISC-V related work but their organization does not or their work is separate from their day-job and they want to contribute to RISC-V technologies.

RISC-V is a community of passionate, dedicated, and invested stakeholders.

  4. Please note: If you are signing up as an Individual member, please use an email address that is not affiliated with any company or organization.
  5. In the sign-up process, you will see indications of the Linux Foundation. Note that RISC-V has a relationship with the Linux Foundation 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.
  6. 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 for Strategic and Premier members. Community level and Individual members will not receive an invoice.
