Could the catalyst for mass adoption of RISC-V be driven by China and India?
At the GSA Executive Forum in Munich last month, Naveed Sherwani, CEO of SiFive, talked about the "democratization of silicon" as a result of deployment of open architectures, and how all microcontroller units will be based on RISC-V in the next three years.
That’s a bold statement, and in an industry which has (and probably needs) so much legacy architecture, it’s difficult to see that happening in a three-year timeframe. But then I thought — could the catalyst for mass adoption be driven by China and India? Could this then be the moment where we do see widespread innovation and commercialization of RISC-V based products?
