The Genius of RISC-V Microprocessors

By Erik Engheim

RISC-V has been called the Linux of microprocessors, but RISC-V is a lot more than an open instruction-set architecture. It is also a radical departure from established industry conventions.

We will delve into what makes the RISC-V design profoundly different from other industry standards such as x86 and ARM and how that translates into significant advantages in the design of embedded systems as well as specialized hardware for tasks such as high-performance computing and machine learning.
