As global economic uncertainty and trade tensions between the United States, China and Taiwan accelerate the movement to localize the supply chain to produce and distribute semiconductors in their own countries, RISC-V (Risk Five) is attracting attention.

Unlike most open instruction sets (ISAs), RISC-V ISAs are open and can be used without purchasing a license.

According to Counterpoint Research’s ‘RISC-V Adoption Picks up Pace’ report, the global pure semiconductor IP market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 11% until 2025, at an annual rate of $8.6 billion.

Although it is unclear whether interest in RISC-V will threaten the area of ​​ARM, which is already taking the lead in this market, it gives strength to the analysis that RISC-V will affect China’s domestic semiconductor development and production.
