Anybody remember Microsoft’s “get the facts” campaign? Well, ARM is having its “get the facts” moment, with the British company launching a site to disparage the open source RISC-V architecture.
The instruction set architecture (ISA) is the foundation of all chip or System-on-Chip (SoC) products. It is therefore one of the most fundamental design choices you will make. If you are considering using an open-source ISA, such as RISC-V, it is critical to understand the key factors you should consider as part of your go-to-market strategy.
It seems odd for ARM – riding high as it is – to attack RISC-V like this, which seems to barely be making a dent anywhere.
