Past Proceedings for Israel - Sep, 5, 2019

The momentum surrounding the RISC-V Instruction Set Architecture (ISA) is growing on a global scale. SiFive, the company founded by the inventors of the RISC-V architecture, has been actively promoting RISC-V based cores and custom silicon solutions throughout the world via technical symposiums that aim to enlighten and engage semiconductor and system designers. Our next SiFive Tech Symposium will be held in Tel Aviv on Thursday, September 5, 2019, and we cordially invite you to attend. This event will be highly educational and will present many opportunities for engagement within the hardware community. It will feature presentations by industry veterans, ecosystem partners and academic luminaries. Attendees will learn about the RISC-V ecosystem, and the SaaS-based approach that is enabling fast access to the custom cores, design platforms, and custom SoC solutions for emerging applications.
Please join us for the SiFive Tech Symposium in Tel Aviv on Thursday, September 5th, starting at 08:30 a.m. at Daniel Hotel Herzliya, 60 Ramot Yam Street, Herzliya, Israel 46851.
Attendance is free, and includes lunch and plenty of time to meet and network with SiFive team members and ecosystem partners.
