Wrapped Up a Great Year – Leading the RISC-V Momentum

January 24, 2020

Welcome Back!

It’s been a while since our last newsletter - a lot has happened since we last reached out. 2019 was another impressive year for SiFive. We made great strides in multiple areas, such as bookings, revenue, team size, number of locations around the world, and capital that we have raised

However, the most wonderful thing about 2019 was the number of customers, investors, DesignShare partners, and university partners that we worked with throughout the year - over 120 organizations. We appreciate all of you for making SiFive what it is today!

Wishing everyone a happy and prosperous 2020!
