Risc-V Adopters


  • SiFive, a company established specifically for developing RISC-V hardware, has processor models released in 2017.These include a RISC-V SoCa quad-core, 64-bit system on a chip (SoC).
  • Syntacore, a founding member of the RISC-V Foundation and one of the first commercial RISC-V IP vendors, develops and licenses family of RISC-V IP since 2015. As of 2018, product line includes eight 32- and 64-bit cores, including open-source SCR1 MCU core. First commercial SoCs, based on the Syntacore IP were demonstrated in 2016.
  • Andes Technology Corporation, a founding member of the RISC-V Foundation which joined the consortium in 2016, released its first two RISC-V cores in 2017. The cores, the N25 and NX25, come with a complete design ecosystems and a number of RISC-V partners. Andes is actively driving the development of RISC-V ecosystem and expects to release several new RISC-V products in 2018.
  • Codasip and UltraSoC have developed fully supported intellectual property for RISC-V embedded SOCs that combine Codasip’s RISC-V cores and other IP with UltraSoC’s debug, optimization and analytics.
  • Imperas has developed a family of fast processor models for the different subsets of RV32GC and RV64GC ISA variants that are part of the OVPsim instruction accurate simulator distributions used for embedded software development.
  • GreenWaves Technologies announced the availability of GAP8, a 32-bit 1 controller plus 8 compute cores, 32-bit SoC and developer board in February 2018. Their GAPuino GAP8 development board started shipping in May 2018.
  • Hex Five announced general availability MultiZone Security – the first RISC-V trusted execution environment (TEE) using the standard RISC-V ISA and privileged mode extensions.
  • CloudBEAR is a processor IP company that develops its own RISC-V cores for a range of applications.
  • Fraser Innovations developed a FII-PRX100 Development Board
