The RISC-V Revolution!

Thanks for attending the RISC-V Workshop Barcelona! Join us at the next event and be part of the disruptive force transforming the microprocessor IP market through open standard collaboration

Join us December 3 - 6 in Santa Clara, CA for the first RISC-V Summit!

The RISC-V Workshop Barcelona

The microprocessor IP market is being disrupted, and RISC-V is fast gaining support as an attractive license-free approach to architecture. This open standard collaboration will transform and reshape established world order of the silicon market, and the implications of this change will resonate from Silicon Valley to Silicon Fenn and beyond. Now is the time to explore this disruptive technology, learn about its benefits, and understand the commercial implications for the strategy of your company and for those of your competitors. Join the expansive and international RISC-V ecosystem to discuss current and prospective RISC-V projects and implementations, as well as influence the future evolution of the instruction set architecture (ISA).

Event Highlights At RISC-V Workshop Barcelona 2018

RISC-V ISA Extensions Update

A half-day of tutorials from the working groups of the RISC-V technical committee on the latest updates around such topics as Base ISA Ratification, BitManip, Compliance, Debug, Formal Spec, Memory Model, Opcode Space Management, Privilege Spec, Security, Software Toolchain and/or Vector Extensions.

2 Day Workshop

Two full days of presentations on RISC-V architecture, commercial and open-source implementations, software and silicon, vectors and security, applications and accelerators, simulation infrastructure and much more. 

Leaders in the Ecosystem

Speakers included leaders from the major players in the RISC-V ecosystem, including the leading technology companies and research institutions driving the RISC-V ISA specification.

Parties, Networking & Demo Zone

Networking reception with poster sessions and demos where delegates were able to mix, mingle and share a drink with peers, while learning about the latest implementations and updates of the technology. Plus delegates were able to stop by the demo zone and explore the latest innovations on the market.

Tour the Barcelona Supercomputing Center!

Several tours of the Barcelona Supercomputing Center took place during the networking reception.  The BSC is located in a former chapel and was featured in Dan Brown's science fiction thriller origin.

Member Meetings
