Linux Foundation Launches RISC-V Software Ecosystem Project

The Linux Foundation Europe, in partnership with RISC-V International , has launched a new RISC-V Software Ecosystem (RISE) project whose mission is to accelerate the development of open source software for the RISC-V architecture.


The RISE project will work closely with RISC-V International to focus on commercial software readiness to accelerate the introduction of more innovative RISC-V products to the market.

Target segments include mobile, consumer electronics, data center and automotive.

  • Accelerating RISC-V Open Source Software Development
  • Improving the quality of software implementations for RISC-V platforms
  • Drive the RISC-V software ecosystem forward and coordinate the efforts of ecosystem partners

Currently, RISE management board members include: Andes, Google, Intel, Imagination Technologies, MediaTek, NVIDIA, Qualcomm Technologies, Red Hat, Rivos, Samsung, SiFive, T-Head and Ventana.


Calista Redmond, CEO of RISC-V International, said: “As a global community, we have made tremendous strides in the adoption of RISC-V. We are grateful for the upstream contributions of thousands of engineers who are now investing together Organization focused on tools and libraries to support the RISC-V software ecosystem. Accelerating adoption is our shared mission. Our community and the collective investment of the RISE project will build on this momentum.”


RISE project members will provide funding and engineering talent to address specific software deliverables prioritized by the RISE Technical Steering Committee (TSC).

RISE will work to provide a robust software ecosystem for application processors, including software development tools, virtualization support, language runtimes, Linux distribution integration, and system firmware, and will work first with existing open source communities based on open source best practices .

“The RISE project is dedicated to enabling RISC-V in open source tools and libraries (e.g. LLVM, GCC, etc.) to accelerate implementation and time to market.”
