The Register Article: Linux Lobby Org Joins With RISC-V Bods To Promote Open Chip Spec

By November 27, 2018May 12th, 2021No Comments

The Linux Foundation, the non-profit funded by for-profit tech firms to promote the open source operating system, has begun working with the RISC-V Foundation, another non-profit backed by well-heeled companies, to encourage adoption of the open source RISC-V instruction set architecture (ISA).
The two organizations on Tuesday plan to announce a collaboration to enhance the appeal of the RISC-V ISA, tech that proprietary chip designer Arm recently tried to stifle. The results of the tie-up should come in the form of training programs, tool development, community building and governance, marketing support, and legal advice.
In a phone interview with The Register, Rick O’Connor, executive director of the RISC-V Foundation, said the collaboration is really about bringing together the Linux and RISC-V communities to enhance adoption.
