Opportunities and risks in open source processors
The project began back in 2010 at the University of California, Berkeley, and is already being co-developed and promoted by hardware and software developers worldwide, including leading semi-conductor manufacturers. In addition, a large community has formed for the development of the ecosystem around the CPU architecture. The panel discussion will not only look at the latest state of the art but will also explore the benefits and drawbacks of these kinds of open architectures.
Four established international experts will debate the topic of RISC-V in a discussion moderated by Frank Riemenschneider, editor-in-chief of the specialist journal Design & Elektronik. They are Cesare Garlati, Chief Security Strategist, prpl Foundation, Markus Levy, Head of AI and Machine Learning Technologies, NXP Semiconductors, Ted Marena, Director, RISC-V Ecosystem, Western Digital and Tim Whitfield, VP Strategy, Embedded and Automotive, ARM.
Professor Axel Sikora, chair of the advisory committee of embedded world and the embedded world conference, is looking forward to the panel discussion: “RISC-V is a hot topic, because comparable to the battle between Linux and Microsoft, an attempt is being made to challenge the market position of ARM. The discussion at the forum with top-class international players is sure to be very interesting. For those who want to delve a little deeper into the technology, the conference will also devote one and half days to presentations and classes exclusively on RISC-V.”
