Codasip article on Semiconductor Engineering


After an intense week at the 2022 RISC-V Summit in San Jose, California, I am fueled with energy and positive thoughts. I had plenty of time to reflect on the event, which was unique in many ways. A lot happened in a few days for us at Codasip as well as for the wider RISC-V community, and here are 5 things I will remember…

Breakfast Bytes


At the RISC-V Summit in December, there were presentations halfway between a keynote and a technical session. known as RISC-V Spotlights. These were presented to the entire group of attendees but were not blessed with the keynote title. Maybe this is like the way that when a physician in Britain becomes a surgeon, they drop the title "Dr." and go back to "Mr.". A spotlight is even better than a keynote. One spotlight was by Simon Davidmann of Imperas titled…
