SiFive Joins FDXcelerator™ Program to Bring RISC-V Core IP to GLOBALFOUNDRIES’ 22FDX® Process Technology

SAN MATEO, Calif. – Nov. 28, 2017 – SiFive announced today that it has joined GLOBALFOUNDRIES’ FDXcelerator™ Partner Program, and will be making RISC-V CPU IP including SiFive’s E31 and E51 RISC-V cores available on GF’s 22FDX® process technology. Based on the open source RISC-V ISA, the SiFive E31 offers embedded chip designers new capabilities in high performance within strict area and power requirements, and the SiFive E51 offers a full 64-bit performance at 32-bit price, power and area.

“As the RISC-V ecosystem continues to grow, SiFive’s leading CPU IP is seeing increased adoption. Our partnership with GF is going to enable an even larger pool of system designers to build on an industry-leading process platform,” said Naveed Sherwani, CEO, SiFive. “SiFive has led the RISC-V ecosystem from early on and we are excited to continue extending RISC-V into new market segments.”

“As members of the RISC-V Foundation, we are excited to see more RISC-V IP offerings made available on our processes,” said Gregg Bartlett, senior vice president of CMOS business at GF. “SiFive’s wide range of cores makes them an ideal partner for our FDXcelerator program.”

GF’s FDXcelerator Program brings together select partners to integrate their products or services into validated, plug-and-play design solutions, giving customers access to a broad set of quality offerings specific to 22FDX technology. The program’s open framework enables members to minimize development time and cost while simultaneously leveraging the inherent power and performance advantages of FDX technology.
