This week, we interviewed Jack Kang, Senior Vice President of Business Development and Customer Experience at SiFive. SiFive brings RISC V software and Silicon experts together to innovate with the modern software-driven approach to semiconductors.

In this episode, we talked about the importance of the RISC V open standard for semiconductors to provide design freedom, vendor choice, and long-term tech stack flexibility. We also explored how companies, from automotive OEMs to wearable device manufacturers, are different in their products with custom designs on open standards.

Key Questions:

  • What is the international standard behind RISC-V technology?

  • Who are the big contributors to RISC-V instruction set standards?

  • How do you see the future of RISC-V in the coming years?
