Objectives: Learn about RISC-V, the free and open instruction set architecture poised to become the standard ISA for all computing platforms for the next 50+ years. This conference enables those who: ① wish to commercialize IoT and AI solutions using FPGA or SoC + software economically and want more degrees of freedom, ② do not think existing microcontroller solutions will suffice, and attempt to accelerate their application algorithms (e.g. IoT and AI) using hardware, ③ would like to design microcontroller systems that will scale not only in Japan but in the global market, and ④ need to deploy 64 or 128-bit microcontroller hardware and software in the most economical manner.
RISC-V features: ① C++14, Java, Python, FORTRAN, C#, Objective C, Ada, and OpenCL lauguage roadmap, ② GNU toolchain, LLVM, and Linux support, ③ full IEEE floating-point unit arithmetics (FPU), ④ memory management unit (MMU), trusted execution environment (work in progress), ⑥ accelerator interface, ⑦ Type-II hypervisor support, ⑧ security, ⑨ in-circuit emulator support, ⑩ patent infringement avoidance through leveraging prioir artifacts.

Background: RISC-V is an Instruction Set Architecture (ISA) developed by University of California, Berkeley with assistance of DARPA. Among advantages of RISC-V are the scalability of the architecture covering 32/64/128 bit data length, thanks to DARPA funding most of the architectural features are validated through multiple implementations, and finally and most importantly supported with fundamental software such as compiler, cross tools, libraries, operating systems from day 1. Krste

Objectives: Since 2015, RISC-V Foundation has been holding Workshops in USA and China. There has been significant interest in RISC-V in Japan. Professor Krste Asanovic, the founder and the Chairman of RISC-V Foundation is visiting Japan this December, 2017. We decided to have one day meet up called RISC-V Day 2017 in Tokyo to spend a day to deliver the most updated information on RISC-V primarily to the future “users” of RISC-V.
