EdgeQ is prepping an AI-enabled 5G “basestation on a chip” built on RISC-V cores and OpenRAN standards that claims to greatly reduce power, cost, and complexity for 5G basestations.
Santa Clara based 5G chip startup EdgeV announced a highly integrated and programmable 5G modem processor based on a RISC-V reference design. The EdgeV system-on-chip is compliant with OpenRAN (or “O-RAN”) standards for open, interoperable Radio Access Network (RAN) solutions using software defined cores.
EdgeV also announced that former Qualcomm CEO Paul Jacobs and CTO Matt Grob have joined its advisory board. In November, EdgeQ revealed that it had secured $51 million in funding.
