RISC-V (pronounced “risk five”), the open-source architecture for chip design, has been making a lot of noise in the past few years. The open source nature of RISC-V promises to enable companies to create custom chip hardware specifically tailored to their products and devices.
Now, thanks much in part to the efforts of the RISC-V Foundation, an entire ecosystem of companies has sprung up, both of new startups and established chip and hardware companies, dedicated to leveraging the potential of open chip hardware for a variety of applications.
Who are the leaders of RISC-V of today and tomorrow? We've rounded up a list of eight of the top companies developing RISC-V technology and helping third parties in their own RISC-V efforts.
