Institute for Communication Technologies and Embedded Systems

Seminar: Embedded System Design - M.Sc.

The Embedded Systems Seminar will cover the topic: RISC-V.

RISC-V is an open source instruction set architecture (ISA) that has gained significant attention in recent years. Unlike proprietary ISAs, RISC-V can be freely used, modified and distributed, making it an attractive alternative to traditional architectures. The RISC-V ISA was originally developed at the University of California, Berkeley, with the goal of providing a simple, extensible, and standardized ISA that could be used in computing devices such as embedded systems.

The open source nature, modularity, and simplicity of RISC-V make it a promising alternative to proprietary ISAs for a wide range of applications. As the RISC-V ecosystem continues to grow and mature, it is likely to become an even more attractive option for developers and system designers.
