Andes Technology Corporation created a RISC-V promotion program called the “EasyStart” in July, 2018. The goal of the RISC-V EasyStart program is to help Andes’ design service partners catch the emerging opportunity in RISC-V based SoC design and development. The expanding global alliance now has 15 members and is on the way to its target 20 members in the near future.
The alliance in alphabetical order includes Alchip, ASIC Land , BaySand, CMSC, EE solution , INVECAS, MooreElite, PGC, SiEn (Qingdao) Semiconductor, Silex Insight , Socle , XtremeEDA and 3 unnamed partners. These companies cover foundry process technologies from 90nm to 10nm and some provide both SoC design and turn-key service. The alliance partners will use Andes qualified V5 RISC-V processor cores to provide their end customers total RISC-V design service solutions.
