The RISC-V Foundation has announced the winners of its RISC-V Soft CPU Contest, launched back in July with a view to promoting security-focused RISC-V implementations.
“With the proliferation of connected devices, security is one of the key challenges in hardware design. The free and open RISC-V ISA presents an incredible opportunity for the ecosystem to collaborate to develop more robust solutions for the growing security demands of today and the future,” said RISC-V Foundation chief executive Calista Redmond at the opening of the contest. “This contest is an opportunity for designers and hardware enthusiasts to rethink what is possible with computing design and build a secure RISC-V soft CPU that can prevent software security attacks.”
