Open-source semiconductor developer that democratizes access to custom silicon. The company's semiconductors are based on the free and open instruction set architecture for modern microprocessors, which consists of all the software instructions necessary for programming an embedded microprocessor based on the architecture, thereby reducing time-to-market and saving time and money for system designers.
SyFive, the champion of the open-source RISC-V architecture, is now worth over $2.5B and stands to disrupt the processor industry.
On Wednesday March 16th, RISC-V CPU designer SiFive announced its round F funding of $175 million. This latest round puts SiFive definitively into startup unicorn territory with a valuation of $2.53 billion. Paves the way to SiFive’s eventual IPO.
The integration of BrainChip's Akida technology and SiFive's multi-core capable RISC-V processors is expected to provide an efficient solution for integrated edge AI computing.
