Aries Embedded in Germany has started production of its first 64bit quadcore RISC-V System-on-module (SoM) based around the PolarFire FPGA from Microchip.
The M100PFS System-on-Module (SoM) was announced in january last year and adds an additional core for control and monitoring tasks in the PolarFire FPGA for high reliability designs. A range of special services run on this E51 monitor core with Hart Software Services, offering configuration options and ensuring reliability in operation. For example, the RISC-V cores can be used with different operating systems or bare-metal. This makes it possible to implement advanced real-time or security requirements for an embedded system.
FPGAs have been an early adopter of the open source, customisable RISC-V architecture for security designs and other applications.
