Enabling the RISC-V Ecosystem

Semiconductor Engineering Blog by Tom Anderson, Technical Marketing Consultant, OneSpin

Industry initiatives are critical factors for processor family success.

Earlier this year, OneSpin’s Sven Beyer discussed the emerging RISC-V processor and some of its verification challenges. He stated that “RISC-V is hot and stands at the beginning of what may be a major shift in the industry.” In the few intervening months, it has become even more apparent that RISC-V is fundamentally changing system-on-chip (SoC) development. Dozens of commercial and open-source implementations of processor cores are available, and millions of SoCs have already shipped with embedded RISC-V processors. Two industry groups have been established to promote RISC-V and help grow the ecosystem of hardware, software, tools, and services.

For this post we’re taking a step back from the technical details to discuss these activities and the role that OneSpin is playing.
