Course description

Introduction to RISC-V

RISC-V is a free and open instruction set architecture (ISA) enabling a new era of processor innovation through open standard collaboration. This course will guide you through the various aspects of understanding the RISC-V community ecosystem, RISC-V International, the RISC-V specifications and how to help curate and develop them, and the technical aspects of working with RISC-V both as a developer and end-user.

"Introduction to Risc-V" is designed for RISC-V enthusiasts, hardware nerds, and anyone else interested in the details of how an open source ISA is breaking down barriers and opening up new opportunities in the microprocessor world.

This course contains a high level overview of RISC-V International, as well as how to get started working with the RISC-V ISA. The course gives you the foundational knowledge you need to effectively engage in the RISC-V community, contribute to the ISA specifications, or to develop the wide range of RISC-V software projects. After completing this course, you will have a better understanding of the terminology, resources, and workflow you will need to complete your RISC-V journey.
