The RISC-V core features an open ISA, which allows portability and the capability of improving cores quicker than closed ISA cores. This ability is due to there being no encryption for the RISC-V IP core, ensuring trust and certifications that are not possible with closed architectures. Microsemi’s Mi-V ecosystem is intended to bring companies together that were involved in RISC-V’s development and combine to streamline the customer designs.
Express Logic’s X-Ware IoT Platform brings together the ThreadX RTOS, FileX embedded FAT file system, embedded GUIX UI framework, NetX/NetX Duo embedded TCP/IP protocol stack, and USBX embedded USB support. The platform has provides high performance, an extremely small footprint and contains no open-source code. It can automatically scale to use only what is needed by the application. ThreadX, FileX, and NetX Duo have attained the highest level of safety certifications, including IEC 61508 SIL 4, IEC 62304 Class C, ISO 26262 ASIL D, EN 50128 SW-SIL 4, UL 60730-1 Annex H, CSA E60730-1 Annex H, IEC 60730-1 Annex H, IEC 60335-1 Annex R, and IEC 60335-1 Annex R, 1998.
