Semiconductor veterans gather to design customizable, chiplet-based RISC-V server processors | Chris Williams, The Register

A Silicon Valley startup is stepping out of stealth mode today, publicly vowing to supply high-performance data-center-class RISC-V processors.

Ventana Micro Systems said since its founding in 2018 it has secured $53m in funding in series A and B rounds, the latter of which totaled $38m and was led by Marvell founders Sehat Sutardja and Weili Dai.

It is hoped the first samples of its 64-bit RISC-V processors will be shared with customers in the second half of next year, and ship in volume in the first half of 2023. It’s worth remembering that big biz rarely significantly commits to using someone’s silicon until it reaches second generation; the first generation is mostly for evaluation of the platform, which is where Ventana is at right now.
