What People
are Saying

Working together with SiFive to accelerate the growth of the RISC‑V ISA and our Mi‑V ecosystem, the HiFive Unleashed Expansion Board and HiFive Unleashed development board give the broader Linux market an extremely robust platform for RISC‑V development.

Ted Speers — Microsemi, Head of Product Planning, Programmable Business Unit

The 28nm fabricated U540 SoC that drives the SBC is not only the first multi-core and Linux-ready RISC‑V processor, but the first to provide cache coherence.

Eric Brown — Linux.com

It‘s the first off-the-shelf RISC‑V product to be able to boot operating systems running the Linux kernel, which recently received mainstream support for the RISC‑V ISA.

Gareth Halfacree — Bit-Tech.net

The RISC‑V Foundation applauds the work Microsemi and SiFive have done to deliver a comprehensive Linux software development platform for RISC‑V. Particularly in the embedded market, where a growing majority of today’s designs run Linux, this Microsemi/SiFive RISC‑V solution offers a compelling development environment.
