Now Available: FREE RISC-V EXPLORER. A fast, free way to develop with RISC-V.See how it works


The safe and efficient use of RISC-V open source hardware requires advanced productization and verification environments that are on par with those of proprietary IP companies. Bluespec’s RISC-V Factory makes such an environment available to the RISC-V community.


  • Select cores from best-in-class RISC-V open source projects
  • Simulate and emulate Factory cores with minimal setup
  • Use commercial SoCs for accurate apples-to-apples comparisons
  • Measure performance on benchmarks and application code


  • Optimize and verify your software on real RISC-V hardware
  • Develop accelerators to optimize performance, power and size
  • Validate and verify your custom RISC-V cores
Coming Soon


  • Quickly add accelerators to any Factory integrated core
  • Debug functionality with accelerator-aware debug
  • Analyze speedup with built-in performance counters
  • Develop accelerators on bare metal or virtual memory


  • Verify CPU functionality with high-coverage RISC-V test suites
  • Validate performance on benchmarks and applications code
  • Confirm system functionality on operating systems and firmware
  • Run verification on off-the-shelf Factory cores or custom cores
