TechRepublic Article: RISC-V And Linux Foundations Will Partner To Promote Open Source CPU

By November 28, 2018May 12th, 2021No Comments

The Linux Foundation and RISC-V Foundation announced yesterday a joint collaboration project to promote open source development and commercial adoption of the RISC-V instruction set architecture (ISA).
RISC-V is a new royalty-free ISA developed principally by researchers at UC Berkeley—with significant outside contributions—that is gaining popularity in Internet of Things (IoT), low-power, and embedded applications. Designs for higher-power use cases are also available. The Hi-Five Unleashed single-board computers feature a quad-core 1.5 GHz RISC-V CPU capable of directly running Linux.
Though some devices that integrate RISC-V will use real-time operating systems rather than Linux, the use of Linux in development will be instrumental as existing tools are being extended to support the RISC-V ISA when developing software on traditional computers.
