RISC-V Processor Design and Prototyping

RISC-V is a free, open instruction set architecture, (ISA) that enables processor innovation through open standard collaboration. The RISC-V ISA provides the research community with an opportunity for innovation in new system products, particularly for machine learning and edge computing.

CMC helps realize RISC-V designs by offering:

  • Silicon-proven design platforms based on OpenHW Group CORE-V family of open-source cores
  • CAD tools and flows for virtual system prototyping and ASIP design, physical implementation, PCB design, and software development
    • Industry-standard tools from Cadence Design Systems, Synopsys, and Mentor Graphics
    • CMC Cloud access, pre-configured to ensure quick and easy desktop use
  • FPGA platforms for system emulation and validation, early software bring-up and debug
    • Available on-site, through short-term rental or via CMC cloud access
  • Design kits for fabrication in commercial technologies from 350nm down to 22nm
    • Including digital cells, memory, and I/O blocks
  • Multi-project wafer services for fabrication
  • Packaging and assembly services
  • Access to test equipment
