Semiconductor Engineering: Integration Challenges For RISC-V Designs

by Ed Sperling, On Feb 27, 2024

Modifying the source code allows for democratization of design, but it adds some hurdles for design teams.

One of the big draws of RISC-V is that it allows design teams to create unique chips or chiplets and to make modifications to the instruction-set architecture. That extra degree of freedom also creates some issues when it comes to integrating those designs into packages or systems because they may require non-standard connectivity approaches. Frank Schirrmeister, vice president of marketing at Arteris, talks with Semiconductor Engineering about defining which blocks need to talk to other blocks, building cache coherency into a design, and the different interfaces that need to be considered in a complex system.
