About this event

Please join us for the third Rocky Mountain RISC-V Meetup! We will begin with a networking session, followed by presentations and demos. Anyone interested in the RISC-V ISA and related ecosystem is encouraged to attend!

Talks will include:

EMBEDDED PROCESSORS: THE PARADIGM HAS SHIFTED
(Dan Ganousis, VP Sales, Strategic Accounts | SiFive)

Long gone are the days of embedded processing being dominated by a single IP vendor named Arm. Just like how Linux disrupted the operating system market by promoting an open-source solution, so too has RISC-V disrupted the embedded processor market. However, most people are still unclear about why an open-source ISA is so beneficial—attend this talk and it'll become crystal clear. Included will be a demonstration of SiFive's innovative CoreDesigner tool that led the paradigm shift in the embedded processor IP market.

REAL-TIME LINUX?
(Tim Morin, Director of Product Line Marketing | Microsemi)

If you Google Real-Time Linux you can see the long history of developers trying to make the Linux Kernel Pre-emptive or provide some level of “real-time” to Linux. Clearly, there is a desire for real-time and Linux. Clearly, the mainline Linux Kernel will never be a deterministic real-time operating system – It’s an Operating system first and foremost. Learn how PolarFire SoC enables Real-Time and Linux applications to exist in a single chip.

Demos will include:

COREGUARD: A BODYGUARD FOR YOUR PROCESSOR
(Marco Ciaffi, Co-Founder & VP of Engineering | Dover Microsystems)

See how CoreGuard prevents the exploitation of software vulnerabilities and enables processors to defend themselves against network-based attacks.
