What is RISC-V Foundation?

RISC-V  is a free and open ISA enabling a new era of processor innovation through open standard collaboration.

The RISC- V Foundation is a non-profit entity serving members and the industry and was originally developed in the Computer Science Division of the EECS Department at the University of California, Berkeley.

Recently RISC-V and GigaDevice announced the GD32V Series, which is said to be the world’s first 32-bit general-purpose microcontroller based on the RISC-V core.

Perf-V is a FPGA demo board designed for RISC-V opensource community by PerfXLab. It integrates various peripheral chips and offers many interfaces.

  • It uses Xilinx Artix-7 FPGA, Vivado software development,and is designed for the RISC-V open source community and FPGA learning enthusiasts design development board.
  • It Integrates a variety of peripheral chips to provide a rich set of peripheral interfaces, including PMOD, Arduino, JTAG, UART interfaces, and high-speed interfaces for expansion of HDMI, VGA, USB2.0/3.0, camera, Bluetooth, expansion boards, etc. Strong flexibility.
  • Based on Perf-V’s self-developed smart car, it can use mobile phone Bluetooth to control the movement of the car, and can realize automatic tracing and obstacle avoidance functions.

You can also choose another one with the chip XC7A100T-1FTG256C, which has more logic cells and CLBs.
