Leiphone Article: What Is One Of The Keys To The Rapid Introduction Of RISC-V Processors In Western Digital?

By May 8, 2019May 12th, 2021No Comments

The RISC-V instruction set officially released the first edition of the user manual in 2014. Since then, NVIDIA, Western Digital, Qualcomm, HiSilicon, Alibaba, Samsung and other world-renowned companies have joined the RISC-V Foundation and promoted the development of the RISC-V ISA. However, RISC-V wants to be as successful as x86 and Arm, and the construction of the ecosystem is critical for companies like Western Digital and HiSilicon to launch the RISC-V processor and related product toolchain faster.
As an important driving force for the development of RISC-V,  Western Digital released SweRV, a self-developed general architecture based on the RISC-V instruction set, which is Western Digital’s efforts to lead ISA (instruction set architecture) and joining the ecosystem is part of their transition to develop an exempted CPU core.
