You Will Not Get Fired for Choosing RISC-V

You Will Not Get Fired for Choosing RISC-V
by Camille Kokozaki on 12-27-2018 at 7:00 am

These were the closing words Yunsup Lee, CTO, SiFive used at one of the December RISC-V Summit Keynotes entitled ‘Opportunities and Challenges of Building Silicon in the Cloud’. Fired up was more the mood among the 1000+ attendees of the RISC-V Summit held at the Santa Clara Convention Center and SiFive was among the companies showcasing… Read More


Imperas and RISC-V

Imperas and RISC-V
by Bernard Murphy on 12-06-2018 at 7:00 am

I met Imperas at TechCon this year because I wanted to become a bit more knowledgeable about virtual modeling. That led me to become more interested in RISC-V and a talk given by Krste Asanovic of UCB and SiFive. My takeaway surprised me. I had thought this was an open-source David versus proprietary Goliaths (Intel and ARM) battle… Read More


RISC-V End to End Solutions for HPC and Networking

RISC-V End to End Solutions for HPC and Networking
by Daniel Nenni on 11-30-2018 at 12:00 pm

Semiconductor IP is one of the more exciting and most viewed topics we cover on SemiWiki, it has been that way since we began in 2011 and that trend will continue indefinitely, my opinion.

Semiconductor IP: Total Blogs: 640: Total Views: 3253751: Average: 5084

Based on the design starts we track, Cloud Computing is a leading semiconductor… Read More


Security and RISC-V

Security and RISC-V
by Bernard Murphy on 11-30-2018 at 7:00 am

One of the challenges in the RISC-V bid for world domination may be security. That may seem like a silly statement, given that security weaknesses are invariably a function of implementation and RISC-V doesn’t define implementation, only the instruction-set architecture (ISA). But bear with me. RISC-V success depends heavily… Read More


Dover Microsystems Spins New Approach to Security

Dover Microsystems Spins New Approach to Security
by Bernard Murphy on 11-22-2018 at 7:00 am

One of the companies I met at ARM TechCon was Dover Microsystems who offer a product in embedded security. You might ask why we need yet another security solution. Surely we’re overloaded with security options from ARM and many others in the forms of TEEs, secure boots, secure enclaves and so on? Why do we need more? Because defending… Read More

eSilicon and SiFive partner for Next-Generation SerDes IP
by Daniel Nenni on 08-10-2018 at 12:00 pm

While writing “Mobile Unleashed: The Origin and Evolution of ARM Processors In Our Devices” it was very clear to me that ARM was an IP phenomenon that I did not believe would ever be repeated. Clearly I was wrong as we now have RISC-V with an incredible adoption rate, a full fledged ecosystem, and top tier implementers… Read More


SiFive Unveils E2 Core IP Series for Smallest, Lowest Power RISC-V Designs

SiFive Unveils E2 Core IP Series for Smallest, Lowest Power RISC-V Designs
by Camille Kokozaki on 07-06-2018 at 12:00 pm

Fully configurable with advanced feature sets allows for broad applications, including microcontrollers, IoT, wearables, and smart cards

The E20 and E21 add to the growing list of SiFive RISC-V cores addressing the embedded controller, IoT, wearables, smart toys. On June 25, DAC opening day, SiFive announced the availability… Read More


DAC 2018 Potpourri

DAC 2018 Potpourri
by Alex Tan on 07-03-2018 at 12:00 pm

The venue
Despite of being held at the new three-story Moscone West building, this year 55th DAC in San Francisco bore many similarities as compared with last year’s. Similar booth decors and floorplan positioning of the big two, Synopsys and Cadence, which were across of each other and right next to the first floor entrance –although… Read More

RISC-V Ready (Tools) Set (Security) Go (Build)
by Camille Kokozaki on 06-26-2018 at 12:00 pm

The second Bay Area RISC-V Meetup event was held at the DoubleTree Hilton in Burlingame on June 19 with about 150 attendees. This event was hosted by SiFive and started with a networking session. The topics and speakers for the evening were:

  • Commercial Software Tools – Larry Lapides, Imperas
  • Securing RISC-V Processors
