By November 26, 2018May 12th, 2021No Comments
  • Thales expertise will support the design of secure, dependable microprocessors.

  • Thales is committed to a coordinated approach to future hardware developments by industry and the academic community

  • The open source hardware revolution has implications for most of the embedded systems developed for the aerospace, space, automotive, rail transport, security and defense sectors.

Membership of the RISC-V Foundation is the latest illustration of Thales’s commitment to free open-source hardware architectures based on RISC-V processors, and an opportunity for the company to play a major role in a new era microprocessor design. Based on the same philosophy as the Linux success story in the world of software, open source hardware is becoming increasingly important in many key sectors.

Thales will draw on its expertise in the security and dependability of critical embedded systems to help industry players and academic partners in the RISC-V community to establish security best practices for hardware development. The ultimate objective is to improve the security and dependability of Internet of Things (IoT) devices, embedded systems and machine learning implementations.
