The 23-member team in Colombia involves grad students with job experience in semiconductor companies such as Samsung, Freescale, NXP and Semtech. Their work is supported by the government and the university with an investment of US$1 million in equipment to characterize and test chips.


The mRISCV supports 4 KBytes RAM and a host of peripherals and interconnects.

The group is collaborating with others around the world, including a team from Cambridge. Together they received funding from the Royal Academy of Engineering to boost the development of high-speed interfaces for an open source SoC capable of running Linux.
