Session 5.1: RISC-V I Overview

How to Benefit from RISC-V Based Linux for Embedded Industrial Applications Vortragssprache Englisch

RISC-V provides numerous advantages for the embedded and industrial market. These are the facts that (1) the number of instructions are few, that (2) the instruction set is frozen, that (3) Linux is upstreamed and that (4) the RTL can be inspected. -With fewer instructions, the area and power consumed by a RISC-V solution will be less than comparable processor architectures. This leads to system level cost savings for customers. -Because the instruction set is frozen, software investments will be protected. Engineers can write code and it will run on any RISC-V core, forever. Long term product support is assured by RISC-V. -With the majority of embedded and industrial applications using Linux, now that RISC-V supports Linux, customers are free to ignore the ISA and instead choose an architect that best meets their needs. -Some industrial applications have stringent certifications. Many times the choice for processors is very limited. With RISC-V the RTL can potentially be provided, thus shortening certification times and as a side benefit trust can be ensured. How to get started and utilize Linux based RISC-V architectures will be discussed.
