EE Times Article: Wearables Firm Invests $8 Million In RISC-V Startup

By March 1, 2019May 12th, 2021No Comments

Smart wearable device firm Huami has further increased its stake in the RISC-V ecosystem, leading a €7 million (about $7.96 million) series A investment along with Soitec into GreenWaves Technologies, developer of a low-power internet of things (IoT) applications processor for intelligent sensors. GreenWaves’ GAP8 processor was launched a year ago. The company says that more than 300 development boards have been sold to date, with multiple customer designs in progress.
In an interview with EE Times, co-founder and CEO Loic Lietar said that he expects to have between five and 10 customers in production with GreenWaves’ first-generation chip by the end of this year. He said that although they have sold a large number of development boards, it’s often difficult to pinpoint where each one is in the design cycle. But he expects that first products using its RISC-V–based IoT intelligent processor are likely to be in smart wearables (not wrist-worn), toys, robotics, and in smart buildings applications for people-counting activity.
