SiFive is ending production of current-generation Unmatched boards for RISC-V developers.
SiFive this week announced that due to challenges with components supply, it would discontinue its current-generation HiFive Unmatched boards for RISC-V software and hardware developers. Instead, the company will focus on developing and producing next-generation HiFive single-board computers.
“With such great ecosystem adoption, demand has exceeded our already high expectations, and we are close to selling out our production inventory,” Phil Dworsky of SiFive announced at SiFive Forums (via Hackster.io). “Given the challenge of supply chain issues that we overcame for the first run of these boards (issues that we continue to face), we have decided to focus on the next generation SiFive HiFive development systems rather than trying to put together another build of the HiFive Unmatched platform in 2022.”
