Please join us for SiFive’s first RISC-V event in Israel on Monday, December 17th, starting at 08:30 a.m. at the Daniel Hotel, Herzliya.

RISC-V is an open ISA enabling a new era of processor innovation through open standard collaboration. Born in academia and research, the RISC-V ISA delivers a new level of extensible software and hardware freedom on architecture, paving the way for the next 50 years of computing design and innovation.

Attendance is free and includes lunch and plenty of time to meet and network with the inventors of RISC-V!

Arrive early for a free gift and a copy of The RISC-V Reader: An Open Architecture Atlas by David Patterson and Andrew Waterman.
