lowRISC: open source SoC project (System on a Chip)


What are the goals of the project?

  • To create a fully open SoC and low-cost development board and to
    support the open-source hardware community. This will involve volume
    silicon manufacture.
  • To explore and promote novel hardware security features
  • To make it simple for existing companies and especially semiconductor
    startups to create derivative designs, e.g. by sharing scripts, tools,
    source and our experience
  • To create a benchmark design to aid academic research
