RISC-V Test and
Expert, independent RISC-V Test and Verification Services
RISC-V is the new instruction set architecture (ISA) that is set to become a standard open architecture for industry implementations under the governance of the RISC-V Foundation. RISC-V is a compact ISA that is ideal for embedded applications, including low-power platforms for the Internet of Things (IoT).
The test and verification of SoC or FPGA devices is widely recognised as the largest task in silicon development and real-world RISC-V based platforms will continue to rely on industry-leading test and verification methodologies to deliver high-quality solutions on-time and on-budget.
To help you deliver successful RISC-V based designs Tessolve can offer specific services that build on and extend the world-class test and verification services that we have been delivering to the semiconductor industry since 2008.
Additional Test and Verification Services
The ISA was originally designed to support computer architecture research at the University of California, Berkeley but has since moved into the commercial space through the RISC-V foundation. The foundation is a non-profit corporation that directs the future development and drives the adoption of the RISC-V ISA. It now includes over 40 members including: AMD, BAE Systems, Google, Hewlett Packard Enterprise, Huawei, Micron, Microsoft, NXP, NVIDIA, Oracle and Qualcomm. See all members.
RISC-V Technical Information
A full suite of technical specification and software tools including a GNU/GCC software tool chain, GNU/GDB debugger, an LLVM compiler, a Spike ISA simulator, QEMU, and a verification suite can be download from the RISC-V Specification Page. The article pictured above “RISC-V Offers Simple, Modular ISA” appeared in The Linley Group’s Microprocessor Report of March 2016 and provides a good overview of the feature set.
