BUILT ON COMMUNITY
We Help Drive the Global Ecosystem
By supporting the open standard RISC-V architecture, the last ISA that will ever matter, SiFive helps spur innovation across a broad community of thousands while also ensuring our customers benefit from the high-performance evolution of our IP, ecosystem, extensions, and tools.
We were founded by the inventors of RISC-V. Since then, we’ve earned more than 350 design wins by meeting previously unachievable performance, power, and area target combinations for today’s most challenging workloads. For some applications, SiFive cores deliver comparable performance to equivalent Arm cores at 30% to 40% lower power in a smaller area. Best of all, they give you total control of design, build, and everything else.
Customers choose RISC-V because:
- It’s a modern architecture for today’s workloads
- Designers can adapt the open standard ISA for their specific needs on Microsoft or Linux systems
- No vendor lock-in with an open ecosystem
- The ISA evolves with customer requirements
- Provides superior compute density in terms of performance per watt
SiFive is at the forefront of RISC-V, partnering with some of the world’s largest semiconductor manufacturers, global hyperscale data centers, and leading consumer device companies.
Based on this collaboration, we deliver the CPU architecture you need to innovate faster as you develop wearables, automotive and aerospace technology, and other consumer devices. Here’s just some of what SiFIve delivers:
- Innovative RISC-V CPU IP for the semiconductor industry
- Development of application-specific silicon faster than ever
- The full potential of the open RISC-V architecture, unleashed at scale
