Open-Source Processors:
Bringing Silicon Back to Silicon Valley?
 

Register Below

 
The open-source approach to developing new technologies is entering a new realm, with the potential to change an entire industry. For years, open-source has lived exclusively in the software domain. From Linux to GitHub, open-source software has become a powerful way to bring new products and solutions to market. This open-source transformation in software is now making its way to silicon, with far-reaching implications.

Open-source has the potential to be as big a game-changer in silicon as it has been in software. Companies like Sifive and Esperanto are already commercializing new architectures based on the open-source approach, and new open-source communities like the RISC V consortium are having a huge impact.

In this event, our panel will discuss the promise of open-source CPU architectures and the challenges faced in building complete system-on-a-chip (SoC) products around an open-source Instruction Set Architecture (ISA).

  • What will motivate chip companies and customers to embrace open-source hardware?
  • What ecosystem components are needed for successful commercialization?
  • Which domains will benefit by embedding an open-architecture?
  • What business models can succeed in this new ecosystem?

Join us on September 18 to find out.
