Alibaba Cloud Unveils RISC-V Chip Development Platform (Computer Weekly)

Alibaba Cloud has unveiled a chip development platform to help global developers design high-performance systems-on-chip (SoCs) based on the open-source RISC-V instruction-set architecture.

Dubbed Wujian 600, the platform, custom built by Alibaba’s chip development business T-head, is tailored for edge applications such as home robots, medical imaging and video conferencing.

Now available for licensing, Wujian 600 has been used by T-head to build the TH1520 prototype, a high performance SoC that packs in the quad-core Xuantie C910 RISC-V-based CPU, a neutral processing unit, DDR memory and standard I/O interfaces.

TH1520, which has also adopted the Trusted Execution Environment (TEE) security certification scheme that meets the GlobalPlatform standard, is now being used in Alibaba’s ecosystem.
