Linux, RISC-V Foundations to Collaborate on Open Architectures
November 28, 2018
In addition to tools, services, and training support, the Linux Foundation will provide neutral governance, best practices for open source development, community outreach, marketing, and legal advice.
SAN FRANCISCO and BERKELEY, CA. The Linux Foundation and RISC-V Foundation have announced a joint collaboration agreement to accelerate the development and adoption of the RISC-V ISA using Linux tools infrastructure, services, and training programs.
“This joint collaboration with the Linux Foundation will enable the RISC-V Foundation to offer more robust support and educational tools for the active RISC-V community, and enable operating systems, hardware implementations, and development tools to scale faster,” says Rick O’Connor, executive director of the non-profit RISC-V Foundation.
In addition to tools, services, and training support, the Linux Foundation will provide neutral governance, best practices for open source development, community outreach, marketing, and legal expertise.
The Linux and RISC-V communities are already collaborating on a pair of “Getting Started” guides for running the open-source Zephyr RTOS on RISC-V-based platforms. These guides will be released at the RISC-V Summit on Dec. 3, 2018, in Santa Clara during training classes led by Antmicro, Google, Microchip Technology, Western Digital, and the Linux Foundation.
Embedded Computing Design will also participate in the RISC-V Summit, moderating a panel on security in the RISC-V ecosystem on Dec. 4.
