UltraSoC joins the OpenHW Group and extends its commitment to an open-source future for technology development




 

CAMBRIDGE, UK ? 21 November 2019 UltraSoC today announced it has joined the OpenHW Group, the global not-for-profit organization established earlier this year to further the adoption of open source processors, particularly for high volume production systems-on-chip (SoCs). As part of its involvement, UltraSoC will contribute its substantial experience and IP in the area of system-level debug and processor trace. UltraSoC is committed to supporting its customers using all open-source and proprietary technologies and is seeing an increasing number of designs supporting mixed (heterogeneous) processor hardware.

The OpenHW Group has already announced a range of cores, dubbed CORE-V, based on the RISC-V open ISA. Both UltraSoC and the OpenHW Group are active members of the RISC-V Foundation, and development in this area will be a key part of UltraSoC?s initial contribution to the group.

Launched in June 2019, the OpenHW Group provides a complete infrastructure for hosting high quality open-source hardware developments. The Group, comprised of 25 member and partner organizations, operates as a not-for-profit driven by its members and individual contributors, where hardware and software designers collaborate globally in the development of open-source cores, as well as related IP, tools and software.

Rick O?Connor, Founder and CEO of OpenHW Group, added, ?I am delighted that UltraSoC is bringing its significant and broad ?platform agnostic? embedded systems expertise to the OpenHW Group. I am confident the OpenHW Group ecosystem will benefit greatly from UltraSoC?s insights into building and operating reliable systems based on a wide range of open-source and heterogeneous hardware.?

UltraSoC CEO, Rupert Baines, commented, ?The OpenHW Group is just what the industry needs today to make it easier to develop real systems using open-source hardware ? these developments are increasingly presenting an equal or better option to proprietary CPU-based alternatives. We congratulate Rick and the team for the enlightened initiative and look forward to getting involved.?
