RISC-V Momentum Seen Growing in China

Andes, Gowin gear up cores, FPGAs

By Rick Merritt, EETimes - SANTA CLARA, Calif., Nov. 15, 2018 – 

Momentum is growing in China for RISC-V, according to reports from two vendors at an event here. Andes detailed six cores it currently sells and four more in the works using the open-source instruction set architecture, and GoWin demonstrated FPGAs using them.

Overall, RISC-V shipments are still tiny compared to those of rivals such as Arm, but growth of its adoption and ecosystem “is moving in the right direction,” said one market watcher.


“In China, pretty much every company is asking for RISC-V, and they think it should include everything” Arm cores have, said Charlie Su, chief technology officer for Andes, a Taiwan-based core vendor that does 30% of its business in the People’s Republic.

So far, Andes has 12 licensees worldwide for its RISC-V cores. Their uses range from storage servers and fingerprint recognizers to several AI apps, he said.
