The RISC-V Revolution is Going Global!

The RISC-V ISA has spawned a worldwide revolution in the semiconductor industry. SiFive, the company founded by the inventors of the RISC-V architecture, is fueling the momentum with myriad hardware and software solutions that are democratizing access to custom silicon featuring robust design platforms and custom accelerators. As a result, we are witnessing new and innovative RISC-V based solutions for IoT, AI, networking and storage applications. SiFive is hosting 50+ symposiums throughout the world to foster education about SiFive’s technologies and advance deeper collaboration within the hardware community. The SiFive Tech Symposiums are free to attend and will feature presentations by industry veterans, ecosystem partners and academic luminaries. Attendees will learn about custom cores and design platforms, and the SaaS-based approach that is enabling fast and easy access to them. Each event will showcase currently-available RISC-V core development boards, high bandwidth memory IP subsystem validation boards and customizable RISC-V SoC platforms, all of which reduce risk, development time and cost while enabling differentiation within silicon.

Bringing the Silicon Back to Silicon Valley

Silicon Catalyst CEO Pete Rodriguez and Director Jim Hogan will be on a panel sponsored by Cadence

Date: Wednesday, September 18, 2019
Time: 6:00pm-8:30pm
Location: Cadence Design Systems
Building 10 Conference Room
2655 Seely Ave.
San Jose, CA 95134

In the past decade, when people thought about Silicon Valley they were more likely to think first about companies at the vanguard of data rather than the semiconductor companies that make it all possible. This is changing, driven by market growth segments such as IoT, Artificial Intelligence, Autonomous Driving, and 5G, and by the advancement of chip design methodologies and a changes in the supply chain aimed at reducing SoC development costs.

Join our panel of Semiconductor Industry experts as we discuss the business drivers that are making semiconductors a hot topic and helping to bring the Silicon back to Silicon Valley.


  • Brian C. Faith, President & CEO QuickLogic

  • Pete Rodriguez, CEO Silicon Catalyst

  • Janet Olson, VP, Research & Development Cadence Design Systems
