IAR Systems has joined the RISC-V Foundation, a non-profit corporation controlled by its members to drive the adoption and implementation of the open, free RISC-V instruction set architecture (ISA) forward, and will contribute to the evolution of the RISC-V ecosystem. The company has seen an increasing demand from its customers to provide tools for the RISC-V ISA and is responding to that need by committing to bring support for RISC-V in the professional, leading development toolchain IAR Embedded Workbench.
RISC-V is an open, free ISA based on established Reduced Instruction Set Computing (RISC) principles. Members of the RISC-V Foundation have access to and participate in the development of the RISC-V ISA specifications and related hardware and software ecosystem. IAR Systems expects to be able to deliver tools support for RISC-V during 2019.
