Expansion Board allows the building of RISC-V PCs
Microsemi and SiFive have launched the HiFive Unleashed Expansion Board to expand the capabilities of SiFive's HiFive Unleashed RISC-V development board and allow the creation of Linux-based applications for a 1GhZ+ RISC-V 64-bit CPU.

The HiFive Unleashed Expansion Board lets developers create custom peripherals in the PolarFire FPGA. Developers can then implement a RISC-V PC by enabling standard PCIe devices, USB and secure digital cards to connect to SiFive's Freedom U540 RISC-V processor. Microsemi will showcase the platform at the RISC-V Workshop being held May 7-10 in Barcelona, Spain.

The HiFive Unleashed Expansion Board also offers additional features, such as a PCIe root complex, SATA port, M.2 SSD port, two USB ports, HDMI, DDR4 memory expansion, an eMMC managed NAND Flash and secure digital card slot.
