The roadshow will feature live demonstrations and presentations from RISC-V Foundation members, includes free admission

BERKELEY, Calif. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — February 21, 2019 — The RISC-V Foundation, a non-profit corporation controlled by its members to drive a new era of processor innovation via the adoption and implementation of the free and open RISC-V instruction set architecture (ISA), today announced the 2019 “ Getting Started with RISC-V” roadshow in collaboration with the Linux Foundation. This series of free, one-day events will occur in market-moving cities across North America, China and EMEA and will showcase innovative RISC-V implementations from members of the RISC-V Foundation. These roadshows are targeted for engineers, technical managers, makers, designers, students and educators. The sessions will feature engaging presentations, live demonstrations and an opportunity to speak with RISC-V experts and other local RISC-V enthusiasts.

Registration is currently open for the North American tour, scheduled for April 2019, with the China and EMEA events planned for Q2 and Q4 2019, respectively. Additional details on those roadshows will be available on the riscv.org website in the coming weeks.

“We are seeing extraordinary, fast-paced growth in the RISC-V ecosystem. We want to accelerate the trajectory of this growth. These one day RISC-V roadshows are designed to help educate and create awareness of RISC-V,” said Martin Fink, interim CEO of the RISC-V Foundation and Executive Vice President and Chief Technology Officer at Western Digital. “Please join us and learn how RISC-V is revolutionizing the processor industry, by enabling innovation, from the industry leaders of RISC-V development.”
