Microchip continues the push for RISC-V hardware by reaching milestones with its PolarFire system-on-a-chip (SoC) field-programmable gate array (FPGA) and Mi-V ecosystem.
One major trend in the field of computing has been the customization of hardware has gained popularity along with the rise of heterogeneous computing and hardware acceleration. Out of this trend came the RISC-V architecture, an open-source ISA that has enabled thousands of cheap and accessible custom hardware designs.
One company that has been championing the RISC-V movement has been Microchip, which has been developing RISC-V-based hardware since at least 2019.
Recently, Microchip has continued this trend as it announced that its RISC-V-based PolarFire SoC FPGA had reached mass production. Along with this, Microchip has also announced continual support for their Mi-V ecosystem, helping drive RISC-V adoption.
