aicas GmbH and SiFive are collaborating to integrate the RISC-V CPU architecture and JamaicaVM Java-based software management.

The collaboration will provide developers a platform to deploy programmable RISC-V-based SoCs and evaluate, manage, and update systems without interruptions.

As there is an increase of custom IoT and embedded systems applications being created with the use of chips, developers must integrate them because the RISC-V ecosystem is expanding extensively.


According to a company press release, JamaicaVM is a managed runtime environment for running Realtime Java and conventional Java application in an embedded environment. It provides deterministic, automatic memory management and object-oriented programming supported by a Realtime Virtual Machine, providing a full hardware abstraction to reduce the likelihood of errors.

JamaicaVM provides stability, scalability, and security for RISC-V developers that are adding extensions to basic instruction sets on microprocessors. The JamaicaVM product family is based on the JamaicaVM, which provides full software lifecycle management.

SiFive and aicas, in addition to AWS, hosted a virtual demonstration of AWS IoT Greengrass 2.0 running on a SiFive RISC-V unmatched board at this year’s all-digital embedded world.
