Free and open-source hardware is no more a dream. Freedom, cost, security, control, and digital sovereignty are only a few advantages of choosing open-source hardware IPs.
The Eclipse Foundation and the OpenHW Group, a not-for-profit global organization, are designing with their members on the highway towards industrial-grade, production-ready open-source cores, and related IP, tools, and software. In this talk, we introduce you to the OpenHW Group ecosystem, its relationship with Eclipse, and its working task groups.
We provide an overview of the CORE-V cores roadmap, a family of open-source RISC-V IPs, their architecture, and their current technology readiness level. We talk about the core-v-mcu, a 32bit RISC-V microcontroller hosting the fully-verified, production-ready CORE-V CV32E40P.
A demo based on its FPGA implementation will be shown, where the microcontroller will use the MQTT protocol to send data to an Eclipse Mosquitto server. A dashboard based on the Eclipse Streamsheets will show the received data to improve the user experience.
