HORIZON-KDT-JU-1-IA-Focus-Topic-1-Development of open sources RISC-V building blocks


Proposals for this call will develop RISC-V compliant IP blocks. Certain IP blocks may be proprietary solutions; however, a large share of developed building blocks provided with a permissive open-source licence is preferred. All developed blocks must come with publicly available documentation, benchmarks, verification suites, and validated reference designs (including firmware/drivers, if required).

For this call, the RISC-V architectural aspect of the proposed IP building blocks should be clearly identifiable. Furthermore, each IP block should be able to demonstrate the optimisation goals it was designed for (low power, high security, processing acceleration, etc.) in realistic application contexts and appropriate use cases.

The following is a list of building blocks of which some must be developed in the proposed project. This list is not definitive but rather an indication of the kind of blocks. A definitive list should be discussed with the consortia s
