RISC-V & The IoT Market: How RISC-V Is Driving the Open-Source Hardware Revolution

Exciting new research from VDC reveals how embedded processor ISA alternative RISC-V is not only revolutionizing hardware design, it’s cracking a new commercial market wide open. Companies long prized for their proprietary architectures, like ARM, Intel, and others, suddenly have to contend—and compete—with nascent open source hardware companies driving a new way of thinking and building.

One stark piece of evidence for this is VDC’s forecast of global shipments of RISC-V processors through 2023. The chart, shown below, predicts a staggering increase in RISC-V demand.

And as with so many who see a bright future for RISC-V, VDC also highlights the two biggest needs for companies looking to design with RISC-V: reliable cores and reliable solutions—both of which create an ecosystem for hardware and software designers to design safely and efficiently, particularly when it comes to RISC-V verification. In their annual survey of the IoT & embedded engineering community, ‘CPU Performance’ and ‘Programming Tools Available’ ranked as the most important characteristics when choosing an embedded processor for engineers and developers currently considering RISC-V for their projects.

For Bluespec, this is another reminder of why we’re working so hard to provide best-in-class RISC-V cores and RISC-V tools for hardware and software developers to ensure their success.
