San Francisco, NFAPost: Intel Corporation has collaborated with global open hardware standards organisation RISC-V International to join it at the Premier membership level. The open RISC-V ecosystem provides open modular building blocks required for modern computing.

RISC-V is an open standard instruction set architecture that began in 2010 and is based on established reduced instruction set computer principles. Unlike most other ISA designs, RISC-V is provided under open source licenses that do not require fees to use

The open collaboration model of RISC-V, combined with design freedom across domains and industries, facilitates technology innovation for the hardware community and RISC-V members. Intel’s planned investments in RISC-V and commitment to open collaboration will strengthen the overall ecosystem and drive commercialisation.

As a part of this collaboration, Intel Foundry Services (IFS) will sponsor an open- source software development platform that allows for freedom in experimentation, including partners across the ecosystem, universities, and consortia.

Intel Foundry Services (IFS) Vice President of Customer Solutions Engineering Bob Brennan will join the RISC-V Board of Directors and the Technical Steering Committee.

Bob Brennan said a rich open-source software and hardware ecosystem is critical for accelerating the growth and adoption of RISC-V and fully unlocking value for chip designer.

According to analysts, Intel has come up with Nios V processor as the next generation of soft processor for Intel FPGAs based on the open-source RISC-V Instruction Set Architecture. This processor is available in the Intel Quartus Prime Pro Edition Software starting with version 21.3.
