RISC-V, an Open Instruction Set Architecture (ISA) designed with small, fast, and low-power real-world implementations in mind, has many advantages for OEMs. Alongside affordability, OEMs do not need to worry locking into a closed ecosystem.
Low “RISC”, High Reward
A decision on processing architecture is of huge importance and carries a significant cost. Once an OEM commits to a particular processor type (such as ARM, Qualcomm, or Intel) they commit considerable design resources, which often includes teams and teams of highly paid, talented engineers. As the processors are not interchangeable, work done on one architecture is not entirely transferrable to others.
