“Our newest products, N25 32bit and NX25 64bit RISC-V based cores coupled with a mature toolchain, will provide even more value to customers in these advanced nodes by providing both high speed and power efficiency,” said Charlie Su, CTO of Andes Technology, in a statement.
Andes announced it was supporting RISC-V open-source architecture in May 2017. The Andes ISA, called AndeStar V5, supports 64-bits and RISC-V as a subset and will bring the open, compact, and modular RISC-V into mainstream SoC applications. The AndesCore NX25 in a typical configuration will deliver a clock frequency of over 1GHz with area of only 67K gates and with power consumption as little as 17 µW/MHz in a TSMC 28nm process.
