Why RISC-V Architecture Is the Future of Embedded Design

The open standard RISC-V can support a faster time to market for silicon designs and may reduce the need for an extensive team.

from www.designnews.com, Nov. 17, 2022 – 

Open source has been a staple of the software industry for decades. Companies have realized that they can save considerable design time and efforts by leveraging open source software from the global community, whether it's for a tiny piece of their business or a central part of their technology offering. These days, the hardware industry is undergoing a similar seismic shift as companies increasingly embrace open standards and open source technologies to innovate better and faster.

Just like open source forever changed the software industry, the open standard RISC-V instruction set architecture (ISA) is fundamentally reshaping the silicon industry. Historically, custom silicon was out of reach for all but the biggest companies. Even then, companies that were able to secure custom silicon were constrained by the limits and costs of proprietary processor architectures. As computing requirements become more complex, companies of all sizes are looking for alternatives to meet the challenging computing needs of AI, ML, and other cutting-edge technologies.

The creation of RISC-V ISA addressed this demand with a new approach to silicon design: an ISA driven by open standard collaboration and created with flexibility, extensibility, and scalability in mind. Thanks to RISC-V, companies and countries are no longer bound to just one IP company for their entire product roadmap. An added benefit to this new approach is that this increased accessibility is driving increased competition, leading to a new generation of innovation that benefits everyone.
