Xuantie E902, a CPU with low performance and low power consumption. In fact, this is the product of Pingtou Brother’s test of RISC-V. After verifying the low power consumption of RISC-V, Pingtou Brother introduced a Xuantie C910 with a main frequency performance of 2.5GHz a year later, and its ability to make high-performance products with RISC-V was also verified.
Ni Guangnan, academician of China Academy of Engineering, said at Yunqi Conference 2022: "The open source model has moved from the software field to the hardware field, and RISC-V provides an opportunity for China to take the initiative in the development of chip industry. China should play its due role in the global open source field, and contribute China’s wisdom, China’s program and China’s strength to break the technological monopoly and promote the world’s collaborative innovation. "
Obviously, the core of RISC-V is open source,To stabilize the RISC-V architecture, different companies need to explore it from different angles, otherwise the architecture will have no vitality.At this time, contributing more institutions or companies will play a more important role in the future development of RISC-V.
This is also an opportunity for China Company. Bao Yungang, a researcher at the Institute of Computing Technology, Chinese Academy of Sciences, believes that,In the past 20 years, there are two main modes of CPU development in China.One is through "introduction-digestion-absorption-re-innovation"High-speed rail mode;One is to build a technical system independently and build an industrial ecology independently.Beidou mode.
“In recent years, the third mode-5G mode has appeared.More and more domestic enterprises spontaneously choose open instruction set RISC-V, participate in the global ecological construction of RISC-V, and build international advantages by integrating into the international ecology, being compatible with international standards. "Bao Yungang said.
Under the 5G mode of CPU, it is even more necessary for China company to actively participate in the formulation of RISC-V standard and contribute more to RISC-V community.
"Limited by the concept, company size, talents and other conditions, domestic RISC-V companies have relatively less investment and contribution to the open source community than many foreign companies." Many people in RISC-V industry said to Leifeng.
"Our software team has slowly stepped out of a path and will make a certain contribution to the software. We will gradually have such a system, which has a great investment.We also call on domestic companies to increase their investment in RISC-V field."Meng Jianyi said.
It is reported that Pingtou is a member of the board of directors of RISC-V International Foundation, and leads 11 technical directions in the foundation, such as data center, storage management, Android, security, etc. Its importance and quantity rank first in the world and the first in China.
Just as both x86 and Arm have encountered accidents in the course of development, no one can know what kind of surprise RISC-V can bring to the world at present, but only by making greater contributions to standard setting and ecological development can we have a better chance of making history.
