What Can be Gained with Custom RISC-V Instructions

NOV

10. NOV 2020

Lecture Embedded Forum > Microcontrollers

16:40-17:00 h | VIRTUAL

One advantage of the RISC-V open ISA is that it is modular and extensible, having a base ISA, optional standard extensions, and custom extensions. This paper examines the benefits and costs of using custom extensions in three real use cases: audio processing, cryptography, and artificial intelligence. Custom instructions enable designers to create domain-specific processors optimized to their target SoC, offering real product differentiation. The benefits vary from case to case but include greater computational performance, smaller code size, smaller silicon area, and improved functionality.

Subjects: Embedded systems

Speaker: Roddy Urquhart (Codasip)

Type: Lecture
