RISC-V is a free and open instruction set architecture defined through open standards-based collaboration.  The Chips Alliance organization was created recently to host open source implementations of hardware IP blocks, including RISC-V based cores.  At Western Digital, we believe that open source hardware development models will change the way that hardware is architected and designed in much the same way that open source has changed the software industry.  This talk will describe how Western Digital is adopting this model with our own RISC-V cores, and provide examples of innovations that will be enabled by industry-wide collaboration around an open and flexible standards-based architecture.  Please join us to learn how open hardware and RISC-V will change the landscape of compute.
