The RISC-V workshop in California at the end of November 2017 provided the opportunity for Western Digital to commit its own work on processors for internal use to the open-source architecture and for the ecosystem of off-the-shelf cores and tools to expand.
Microsemi has set up an ecosystem program around the RISC-V soft cores the company has designed for its FPGAs.
Codasip has added a processor core aimed at low-energy IoT nodes to its growing portfolio of customizable designs based on the RISC-V architecture.
UltraSoc has donated to the RISC-V Foundation a specification for processor trace to try to provide the ecosystem with a common way of exporting runtime data to software tools.
Semiconductor supplier Microsemi has used the Eclipse open-source IDE platform to develop a Windows-based toolchain for CPUs that supports the RISC-V instruction set.
Implementation uses dedicated PULP technology in silicon for Green Waves Technologies on TSMC's 55nm LP process.
Codasip, a provider of processor cores based on the open-source RISC-V processor IP, has teamed up with UltraSoC to incorporate hardware debug and security features.
UltraSoC plans to support the RISC-V open-source instruction architecture with its debug infrastructure and tools.
