SiFive, the leading provider of commercial RISC-V processor IP and custom SoC solutions, today announced it is expanding into the metropolitan Portland area with the opening of a development office in Beaverton, Oregon. The primary mission of the office is to provide local support to existing SiFive customers and partners as well as to help fuel the mass adoption of the RISC-V Instruction Set Architecture (ISA) that is taking place in the region and throughout the world. The office will be managed by Sunil Shenoy, senior vice president and general manager of the RISC-V Business Unit at SiFive, and Ahmet Houssein, vice president of business development for HPC and data center solutions at SiFive. SiFive’s current development tools team, established in September 2018 and headed by Rick Leatherman, a local technology entrepreneur and now director of development tools for SiFive, will also operate from the new Beaverton office space.
“The Portland area has become an international center of open source hardware development,” Shenoy said. “There is a steady stream of RISC-V based innovation at both large and small companies in the area. Establishing a presence in the robust Silicon Forest underscores our commitment to fostering the momentum of the RISC-V revolution.”
