RISC-V (pronounced “risk-five”) is a new instruction set architecture (ISA) that was originally
designed to support computer architecture research and education; and is now set to become a
standard open architecture for industry implementations under the governance of the RISC-V
Foundation. RISC-V ISA is designed from ground-up to be scalable to wide range of applications
from high performance computing servers to low power embedded systems and IoT devices.
Moreover, RISC-V ISA is open sources and freely available for anyone to design, manufacture
chips based on the RISC-V ISA. The RISC-V ISA was originally developed in the Computer
Science Division of the EECS Department at the University of California, Berkeley.

“As the first China based FPGA manufacturer to be the member of RISC-V Foundation,
GOWIN’s mission is to contribute to the affiliation by developing the RISC-V ecosystem and
disseminating the RISC-V ISA to customers in China and Asia”, said by Dr. Ning Song, President
and CTO of GOWIN Semiconductor Corp. “We are implementing RISC–V ISA in our Arora™
family devices to enable customers accelerate their innovation through the free, simplified
RISC-V ISA and our high performance, cost effective FPGA. This product strategy is especially
important in China and Asia countries as the governments, the market here are encouraging
startups and innovation. GOWIN is confident to achieve our mission as we have the best FPGA
products, R&D and application team in China to support our customers and ecosystem here.”
