RISC-V Based Linux for Embedded Applications

Markus Levy  (Director of AI and Machine Learning Technologies, NXP)

Location: Room 204

Date: Wednesday, August 28

Time: 9:00am - 9:45am

Track: ESC - Embedded Hardware Design & Verification, ESC - Embedded Software Design & Verification

Format: Technical Session

Vault Recording: TBD

RISC-V provides many benefits for the embedded, consumer, and industrial markets. The number of instructions are fewer, the instruction set is frozen, Linux is upstreamed and the RTL is able to be inspected. Thus, the power and area taken by a RISC-V solution will not be a comparable processor architecture to the predecessor technology, thereby leading to system-level cost savings for end users, customers, and clients. This session will discuss how to get started using Linux-based RISC-V architectures.

  • Walking through the process of deploying this technology into existing embedded systems and organizations
  • What are the main parallels to the open source software movement versus the key differences?
  • Options for deploying RISC-V into hardware and software industry design flows
  • Tips and tricks for getting started with RISC-V
