SemiWiki Article: The RISC-V Revolution Is Going Global!

By February 22, 2019May 12th, 2021No Comments

This month, you can join us in Austin, Mountain View or Boston. In 2018, we hosted several RISC-V technology symposia in India, China and Israel. These events were very successful in fueling the growing momentum surrounding the RISC-V ISA in these countries. It turns out that these events were just the tip of the iceberg. In 2019, SiFive is greatly expanding its reach by hosting over 50 SiFive Tech Symposia in cities throughout the world. The first leg of the global tour begins in the USA. In collaboration with our co-hosts and partner companies, we aim to foster deeper education, collaboration and engagement within the open-source community.
With Microchip as our co-host, we have created an exciting lineup of speakers, tutorials and demonstrations for the event in Austin, TX on February 21. Ted Speers, a member of the board of directors for the RISC-V Foundation, will present on the history and current state of the union of the RISC-V ISA. Naveed Sherwani, CEO of SiFive, will deliver a keynote presentation about the semiconductor industry and how RISC-V is leading a design revolution. Another keynote presentation will be given by Tim Morin, director of product line marketing for Microchip, who will present on RISC-V based SoC FPGAs. Esha Choukse, a PhD candidate in computer architecture at UT Austin, will present on compression in deep learning for AI applications. We will also have presentations by several other leaders in the RISC-V ecosystem, including NXP and Hex Five Security. Attendees will also have an opportunity to see demonstrations and learn about the latest design platforms for RISC-V based SoCs, development boards, IP, software and more.
