SiFive Joins FDXcelerator Program
SiFive has announced that it has joined GLOBALFOUNDRIES'
FDXcelerator Partner Program, and will be making RISC-V CPU IP including
SiFive's E31 and E51 RISC-V cores available on GF's 22FDX process technology.
Based on the open source RISC-V ISA, the SiFive E31 offers embedded chip
designers new capabilities in high performance within strict area and power
requirements, and the SiFive E51 offers a full 64-bit performance at 32-bit
price, power and area.
"As the RISC-V ecosystem continues to grow, SiFive's
leading CPU IP is seeing increased adoption. Our partnership with GF is going
to enable an even larger pool of system designers to build on an
industry-leading process platform," said Naveed Sherwani, CEO, SiFive.
"SiFive has led the RISC-V ecosystem from early on and we are excited to
continue extending RISC-V into new market segments."
"As members of the RISC-V Foundation, we are excited to
see more RISC-V IP offerings made available on our processes," said Gregg
Bartlett, senior vice president of CMOS business at GF. "SiFive's wide
range of cores makes them an ideal partner for our FDXcelerator program."
GF's FDXcelerator Program brings together select partners to
integrate their products or services into validated, plug-and-play design
solutions, giving customers access to a broad set of quality offerings specific
to 22FDX technology. The program's open framework enables members to minimize
development time and cost while simultaneously leveraging the inherent power
and performance advantages of FDX technology.
