#Startup @SiFiveInc releases #opensourcehardware @risc_v SoC on #Arduino board

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. – Startup SiFive started selling today a $59 Arduino board running its first RISC-V-based SoC and made open source RTL code available online for the chip. The news marks a milestone for a still nascent open source hardware movement. Open source cores have been available previously but they tended to be academic efforts or lacked broad commercial support. The HiFive board is intended to drive demand for custom SoCs SiFive will design and comes with a growing pool of open source Linux variants and tools fed by an expanding foundation that maintains the RISC-V instruction set. Demand for open-source chips and the performance metrics for RISC-V SoCs specifically are uncertain, said analysts when SiFive launched in July . The HiFive board will give the market its best chance to date to put both questions to the test. “RISC-V is really here, anyone can buy ...
