There’s a new, open-to-the-RTL CPU project called lowRISC.
lowRISC is producing fully open hardware systems. From the processor core to the development board, our goal is to create a completely open computing eco-system.
Our open-source SoC (System-on-a-Chip) designs will be based on the 64-bit RISC-V instruction set architecture. Volume silicon manufacture is planned as is a low-cost development board.
lowRISC is a not-for-profit organisation working closely with the University of Cambridge and the open-source community.
This is a positive development for the open source hardware community and I’m excited and honored to be included on their technical advisory board. Can’t wait to play with it!
