Does the OpenHW Group Make RISC-V Real?

June 18, 2019 Embedded Computing Design

The RISC-V instruction set architecture (ISA) has garnered a lot of attention amongst academia and startups. But, being so new, there has been a limited amount of RISC-V IP that one would classify as "production-ready", and, of course, even less silicon.

However, a new industry organization, the OpenHW Group, is looking to take open-source hardware technologies like RISC-V from prototypes to products. This week, Rick O'Connor, President of OpenHW Group and former Executive Director of the RISC-V Foundation, joins the Embedded Insiders to explain the relationship between the new consortium and other open-source initiatives. He also discusses how he believes that production-ready IP like CORE-V RISC-V cores will help accelerate the open-source hardware movement.
