HardOCP Article: India Develops Processor Based On Open Source RISC-V Design

By August 1, 2018May 12th, 2021No Comments

The Shakti Processor Project is an open source RISC-V processor developed by students in India with assistance from Intel and its 22nm FinFET Technology. The processors are based on the RISC-V ISA from UC Berkley. The current processor clocks at around 400MHz, but this a great sign of things to come from this low power ARM design. The current page is down but here is a Google cache of the specifications page.
RISC based (ARM) chips tend to be used in small, low power devices such as smart phones due to their low power usage, low footprint and relatively low cost – hence their use in the Raspberry Pi. Shakrti processor is a low-power prototype, they were interested in optimising power and area. Currently, it’s clocking at 400MHz, DMIPS/MHz – 1.67.
