Open source has revolutionized software. Now it is hardware's turn. This talk will present today's chip design economics, introduce the free and open RISC-V instruction set architecture, and describe how RISC-V, open source hardware, and SiFive are changing the chip design strategies for the next billion chips that are being built for IoT, edge computing, machine learning, and artificial intelligence applications.
Dr. Yunsup Lee is the CTO and co-founder of chip startup SiFive, and is the technical committee chair of the RISC-V foundation. Yunsup received his PhD from UC Berkeley, where he co-designed the RISC-V ISA and the first RISC-V microprocessors, including the development of its vector-fetch extensions. Yunsup also holds a MS in Computer Science from UC Berkeley and a BS in Computer Science and Electrical Engineering from the Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST).
