Andes Technology Corporation, the leading Asia-based supplier of small gate count, low-power and high performance 32/64-bit embedded CPU cores, announces that GOWIN Semiconductor has licensed Andes Technology’s RISC-V CPU core for its Arora® GW-2A FPGA family of products. Besides the standard RISC-V ISA, the Andes Technology RISC-V CPU comes with additional features to improve performance, reliability, program code size and power consumption reduction.
“Adding the Andes RISC-V to our Arora Family of FPGA’s provides fast time to market for engineers wanting to implement a design using the RISC-V CPU,” said Scott Casper, Director of Sales for GOWIN’s Americas Region. “The CPU core can be implemented in a relatively small number of FPGA logic elements thus providing additional capacity for the engineer’s logic design.  Having Andes as a partner has enabled GOWIN to quickly supply customer demand for this popular CPU ISA.”
