18/02/2021 - Second RISC-V week #opensourcehardware

Share on:

[EVENT] 📢 From March 30 to April 1: IRT Nanoelec (EN), CEA Tech, Inria, and OpenHW Group organize the “2nd RISCV week” as a phygital event (online and at sites : Rennes, Grenoble & Paris-Saclay). More details on : https://open-src-soc.org !

RISC-V is a free and open ISA enabling a new era of processor innovation through open source collaboration. Hardware and software designers, be they industrials, academics, or individuals contributors, collaborate in the development of RISC-V cores, related IP, tools and software. This community delivers a new level of free, extensible software and hardware freedom on architecture, paving the way for the next 50 years of computing design and innovation thanks to open source of both hardware and software.

This is the approach taken by the OpenHW Group, a member-driver organization that is industrializing the CORE-V family of RISC-V compliant processor cores. OpenHW Group is developing a full spectrum of verification plans, compilers, IDEs, simulators, and MCU designs. OpenHW Group has recently released a fully verified 32-bit 4 stage core (CV32E40P) and is in active development of 64/32 bit application class core, together with follow-on cores in the CV32 family.

▶️  Students, academics and industrials are welcome.

▶️  The program includes tutorials, keynotes, specialized sessions and panels by speakers from: ETH Zürich, UNSW, Google, Thales, Université de Nantes, Bluespec, Inc, Semidynamics Technology Services, Centre national de la recherche scientifique, Carnegie Mellon University, Huawei, Grenoble INP Esisar, STMicroelectronics, Université Grenoble Alpes, Université Paris-Saclay


Fabien Clermidy, Head of Computing Departement at CEA-List & CEA representative at the Open HWGroup

France organizes an international meeting for the RISC-V worldwide community, for the 3rd time. Some teams contributing to Nanoelec programs are more and more involved in worldwide collaborations on open standards for processors innovation . In this frame, Nanoelec is strongly supporting the workshop “RISC-V week” and CEA is member of the RISC-V International Association and, since 2021, to the Open Hardware Group. 4 questions to Fabien Clermidy, as CEA representative to the Open Hardware Group.
