Observer Tacks RISC-V Cores to Sensors to Simplify Heterogeneous Aggregation

Olof Kindgren, director of the Free and Open Source Silicon Foundation (FOSSi Foundation), has released a tool designed to make multi-sensor aggregation on field-programmable gate arrays (FPGAs) simpler: the RISC-V-powered Observer. “Implementing the logic for sensor communication, post processing and format conversion directly in an FPGA can quickly become very… Read More
