Simplifying Design Verification for Increasingly Custom RISC-V Processors

Embedded Computing Design

RISC-V is known as an open-standard instruction set architecture (ISA) whose base instructions have been frozen to minimize complexity. But more recently it has added a wide range of custom extensions and enhancements that are making it increasingly popular amongst SoC designers building application-specific systems.
The custom functionality adopted in these architectures is often enhanced with a hardware/software co-design strategy that optimizes software to maximize the specialized capabilities of the RISC-V processor IP…
