Dolphin Integration, a major leader in energy efficient Systems-on-Chip, has announced it has recently joined the RISC-V Foundation.
The RISC-V Foundation, a non-profit corporation controlled by its members, directs the future development and drives the adoption of the RISC-V ISA. Originating in academia and research, RISC-V is a free and open ISA enabling a new era of processor innovation through open standard collaboration.
Dolphin Integration will contribute to the expansion and adoption of RISC-V in the IoT market. Its added value to the growing RISC-V ecosystem relies on the IDE SmartVision™, integrating a RISC-V subsystem, and its energy efficient IP portfolio. SmartVision™ is an open environment allowing the design of complete subsystems based on processor cores and peripherals. By adding the support of RISC-V through its RV32 Tornado SoC subsystem, Dolphin Integration offers a complete turnkey solution to configure and optimize ultra-low power SoCs.
SmartVision™ provides an intuitive interface as well as the necessary tools to debug embedded software by simulation or by Circuit Emulation.
“We are delighted to announce our participation in the RISC-V Foundation and to contribute to the development of the RISC-V ecosystem with our IDE SmartVision™ and our energy efficient IP portfolio,” said Christian Dupont, CEO at Dolphin Integration. “Our objective is to provide developers with a trusted solution based on over fifteen years of IP and IDE development, in order to bring high quality, fast Time-To-Market and drastic power consumption reductions to their applications.”
“We are very pleased to welcome Dolphin Integration, a well-known IP provider for low-power SoCs, as a member of the RISC-V Foundation,” said Rick O’Connor, executive director of the non-profit RISC-V Foundation “With the growing RISC-V ecosystem, strong, reliable and open development environments are required to support new use cases for low power SoC applications.”
