CHIPS Alliance is a project hosted by the Linux Foundation to foster a collaborative environment to accelerate the creation and deployment of open SoCs, peripherals and software tools for use in mobile, computing, consumer electronics, and Internet of Things (IoT) applications. The CHIPS Alliance project develops high-quality open source Register Transfer Level (RTL) code relevant to the design of open source CPUs, RISC-V-based SoCs, and complex peripherals for Field Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGAs) and custom silicon.

Codasip is a leading supplier of configurable RISC-V® embedded processor IP. Codasip provides a portfolio of various RISC-V implementations along with a suite of processor developers tools to allow for rapid core customization, and will contribute to working groups on verification platforms and open cores.

"Codasip has years of processor development experience and has shown its dedication to open platforms by its contributions to open source compiler and compliance projects. We welcome their participation in the CHIPS Alliance to facilitate the adoption of open architectures," said Zvonimir Bandi?, senior director of next-generation platforms architecture at Western Digital and Chairman, CHIPS Alliance.

"Codasip is excited to join the CHIPS Alliance and support the community in its efforts to ease the path of adoption of RISC-V processors in leading-edge SOC applications," said Karel Masa?ík, CEO of Codasip. "The CHIPS Alliance is the logical next step in providing chip designers more choices when it comes to processor architectures."

Munich University of Applied Sciences aims to secure an outstanding position as a university of applied sciences. It recognizes the future demands of society and industry, and is changing with a critical yet open vision for current issues, such as the ongoing digitalization of all areas of life. The university focuses on continuous improvement of quality and on constant development in research, teaching, and continuing education.

"We strongly believe in open source silicon and design flows," said Stefan Wallentowitz, professor for computer architecture at MUAS. "We look forward to improving open source verification tools together with innovative companies in that field."

In cooperation with Munich University of Applied Science, the CHIPS Alliance is conducting an open source design verification workshop in Munich. The workshop invites contributions from industry, academia and hobbyists as talks or tutorials. Registration is open now for the November 14?15 event.
