Embedded Computing Design Article: Open source RISC-V Architecture Is Changing The Game For IoT Processors

By February 23, 2018May 12th, 2021No Comments

Over the past decade, open source software has been one of the biggest catalysts in the tech world. Today, the power of open source, the freedom it enables, and the communities that it generates are gaining traction in the hardware world too. For these reasons, RISC-V is gaining huge popularity. Here is an introduction to RISC-V and the opportunities it opens.
RISC-V is an open instruction set architecture (ISA) originally developed in the Computer Science Division at the University of California, Berkeley. It, in turn, is based on the popular reduced instruction set computing (RISC) principles, just like ARM and MIPS and other common commercial processor architectures.
The project took form in 2010, but since then has grown into a massive global collaboration, spanning multiple universities and industry. Coherency is provided by the non-profit RISC-V Foundation, which both guides the underlying ISA specification and acts as the marketing engine to promote the RISC-V approach.
