UC-Berkeley Team to Hold first RISC-V Workshop

Monday, November 24, 2014

Prof. Krste Asanovic and his lab at UC-Berkeley will host a workshop in January in Monterey, CA to showcase recent projects using RISC-V and future developments within the community. The workshop will provide an opportunity to learn about RISC-V infrastructure from its developers. Registration is available online .

RISC-V (pronounced "risk-5") is a new instruction set architecture (ISA) that was originally designed to support computer architecture research and education, and its developers hope that it will become a standard open architecture for industry implementations. RISC-V was originally developed in the Computer Science Division of the EECS Department at the University of California, Berkeley, but has been made freely available open-source under the BSD license for anyone to use.
