SiFive Unveils the first RISC-V-based Arduino Board



SiFive, a fabless provider of customized, open-source-enabled RISC-V semiconductors, announced the release of the Arduino Cinque, the first RISC-V-based development board for the popular open-source hardware platform. Today’s announcement marks the latest development in SiFive’s work to democratize access to custom silicon.

The Arduino Cinque features SiFive’s Freedom E310, a commercially available RISC-V SoC running at 320MHz. Along with the FE310, the Arduino Cinque also features support for 2.4 GHz Wi-Fi and Bluetooth via the inclusion of an ESP32 chip from Espressif.

“The availability of the Arduino Cinque provides the many dreamers, tinkerers, professional makers and aspiring entrepreneurs access to state-of-the-art silicon on one of the world’s most popular development architectures,” said Dale Dougherty, founder and executive chairman of Maker Media. “Using an open-source chip built on top of RISC-V is the natural evolution of open-source hardware, and the Arduino Cinque has the ability to put powerful SiFive silicon into the hands of makers around the world.”
