Intel has launched a new, compact soft core for its FPGA devices based on the RISC-V open instruction set architecture.

The Nios V/c compact microcontroller is the smallest core in the family, following V/m microcontroller core and the V/g general purpose core.

 The V/c core is based on the RV32I​ instruction set with no debug, interrupt controller or exception controller and so is aimed at non-interrupt-driven control applications on Intel FPGAs.

The Nios V/c compact core will initially target all the FPGA devices in Intel Quartus Prime Pro software with a roadmap to many devices supported in Quartus Prime Standard software. Quartus Prime is a programmable logic device design software. 

The first Nios RISC-V core was launched in 2021 to update the original 32bit soft core developed by Altera.
