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.
X-Fab has added a process module to its wide voltage- and temperature-range 180nm mixed-signal process that supports a set of transistors with lower 1/f flicker noise.
Minima Processor is working on the first processor cores that will be customized to use its timing-control technology to push supply voltages into the near-threshold zone.
Arm is putting together a security framework that the company is assembling to support, at least initially, IoT devices based on the Cortex v8M architecture.
Microsemi has set up an ecosystem program around the RISC-V soft cores the company has designed for its FPGAs.
Synopsys' line-up at next week's ARM TechCon includes joint presentations with Huawei and Nvidia.
ARM, Xilinx, Cadence Design Systems, and TSMC have agreed to produce a test chip for the CCIX project.
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.
Sonics has developed a version of its power-management IP core for SoCs that adds support for dynamic voltage and frequency scaling, along with the ability to tune settings according to temperature.
Cliosoft sees a merging of social features and design-data repositories as driving more efficient reuse in chipmakers, bringing them together in its recently launched DesignHub product line.
