One of the great attributes of open-source technology for developers is the ability to mix and match building blocks from different sources but with complementary features to create new platforms with amazing capabilities. A recent example started as a collaboration between ETH Zurich, one of the top technical universities in Europe, and QuickLogic to produce an SoC test chip we called the “Arnold.”

When most people think about OpenHW Group, they probably think first about our RISC-V cores. The group name implies providing hardware designs compliant with the widely adopted free and open RISC-V instruction set architecture (ISA). But supporting an ISA requires much more than the register transfer level (RTL) code to implement the hardware.

The open source methods that have reshaped the software industry are now substantially transforming microprocessor technology development, licensing, and implementation. The OpenHW Group, a global, not-for-profit, member-driven organization headquartered in Ottawa, Canada, and partnered with the Eclipse Foundation, is a major driver of this shift.
