How far has the development of a RISC-V ecosystem progressed?
Cesare Garlati: The RISC-V ecosystem has grown tremendously from its beginnings as a research project at U.C. Berkeley. As of Q4 2018 the Foundation has more than 220 members in 27 countries, many open source and commercial RISC-V cores are available and a robust ecosystem of peripherals, development and software tools.
Today you can find RISC-V solutions that cover everything from tiny 8-bit microcontrollers to 64-bit quad core running Linux. And even a more powerful 128-bit out-of-order core is in the makings at U.C. Berkeley – BOOM (Berkeley Out of Order Machine).
