Codasip joins OpenHW® Group to contribute to RISC-V verification

Munich, Germany, 21 September 2022 – Codasip, the chief in customizable RISC-V processor IP, introduced it has joined OpenHW Group. Along with the prevailing OpenHW ecosystem, Codasip will contribute to the event of requirements throughout numerous strategies together with formal verification. Codasip will contribute supporting IP, instruments, and methodologies to assist the broader group profit from its expertise within the improvement of high-quality, customary and customised RISC-V cores.

OpenHW Group transforms the event of microprocessor expertise and associated sub-systems peripherals via a collaborative, distributed engineering, open-source ecosystem. A non-profit world group pushed by its members and particular person contributors, OpenHW allows {hardware} and software program designers to collaborate within the improvement of open-source cores, IP, instruments and software program. OpenHW gives an infrastructure for internet hosting high-quality open-source {hardware} developments in keeping with trade finest practices.

Codasip is closely dedicated to processor verification as a elementary a part of designing processor cores and is pushing for the institution of agreed methods and requirements to make sure the standard of RISC-V cores continues to enhance. OpenHW Group is an energetic member of RISC-V Worldwide with a shared perception within the significance and prioritization of commercial-grade verification for RISC-V.

Rick O’Connor, President and CEO of OpenHW Group, commented, “I’m excited to welcome Codasip as a powerful addition to OpenHW Group. The OpenHW ecosystem gives an infrastructure for internet hosting high-quality open-source HW developments in keeping with trade finest practices. Codasip places vital emphasis on the significance of processor verification for RISC-V. As a pacesetter in RISC-V processors, Codasip’s position will probably be essential in setting trade requirements and collaborating on tasks with the 90+ members of OpenHW Group.”

Mike Eftimakis, Codasip VP Technique and Ecosystem, added, “Within the robust and rising RISC-V group, everybody supporting the open customary advantages us all. We see the roles of open-source IP and business IP as complementary and although we promote our cores, we additionally see open supply as a vital a part of the ecosystem and for the success of RISC-V. We acknowledge the significance of OpenHW Group’s targets of offering wider entry to high-quality cores and can work in direction of these targets by sharing our experience in verification however probably additionally in different areas the place we see a must step up efforts for the shared advantage of the processor trade.”

Edward Wilford, Senior Principal Analyst, IoT {Hardware} at Omdia mentioned: “There isn’t a query {that a} set of clear, constant and significant requirements may go a great distance in direction of bettering the general degree of high quality anticipated within the trade. It’s essential that ‘open supply’ doesn’t in any approach come to suggest ‘something goes’, particularly with the rising consideration distributors, producers and customers are paying to chip and system safety. It’s truthful to say an SoC, a community, or a sensor array is barely as safe and as succesful as its weakest factor, so any initiative that provides belief to the ecosystem, whether or not business or open-source, must be welcomed.”
