Tech giant Intel Corporation has collaborated with global open hardware standards organization RISC-V International to join it at the Premier membership level.
This move demonstrates Intel’s strategic investment in open collaboration and support of the open RISC-V architecture and highlights numerous deep RISC-V member partnerships with Intel.
Bob Brennan, Vice President of Customer Solutions Engineering for Intel Foundry Services (IFS), will be joining both the RISC-V Board of Directors and the Technical Steering Committee.
“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 designers,” Brennan said in a statement.
“Intel is delighted to support the growth of the free and open RISC-V instruction set architecture. We look forward to optimising IP for Intel process technologies to ensure that RISC-V runs best on IFS silicon across all types of cores, from embedded to high-performance,” Brennan added.
The open RISC-V ecosystem provides open modular building blocks that are essential for modern computing.
In joining RISC-V as a Premier member, Intel is leading and expanding the RISC-V ecosystem potential for industry stakeholders.
RISC-V’s open collaboration model, combined with the freedom of design across domains and industries, facilitates technology innovation for the hardware community and RISC-V members.
Intel’s planned investments and commitment to open collaboration on RISC-V will strengthen the overall ecosystem and drive the commercialization of RISC-V.
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.
The IFS strategy will provide a broad range of leadership intellectual property (IP) optimized for Intel process technologies.
