RISC-V, a new paradigm for open source hardware

In the last decade, open source and open standards have reshaped our world. Such technologies have produced long-lasting results and the RISC-V consortium has extended open source to develop a standard open-source processor architecture. The release of RISC-V to the open community marked the first time the hardware community embraced open-source standards and collaboration at this level. 

This free and open Instruction Set Architecture (ISA) can enable a new era of processor innovation through open standard collaboration with rapid industry-wide adoption. The RISC-V ISA delivers a new level of free, extensible software and hardware freedom on architecture. The architecture can be applied to a broad range of processors, from…
