Dr. Krste Asanovic, co-inventor of RISCV and co-founder of SiFive, tells the tale of how RISC-V came into being, and what the vision for SiFive is, for the IEEE Custom Integrated Circuits Conference (CICC) held virtually in March 2020.

Enjoy the story of how RISC-V was created, initially used, and presented to the world at Hot Chips – which catalyzed the creation of the RISC-V Foundation (now RISC-V International) to enable broad industry adoption, and the founding of SiFive for exploring commercial opportunities.

From being entrepreneurs in residence at Sutter Hill Ventures to becoming a worldwide organization with over 500 employees and 15 design centers, SiFive is focused on a new business model that doesn’t compete with customers and drives vertical integration of differentiated products.
