and Imagination Technologies Partner to Enable Adoption of RISC-V for Automotive Design

SANTA CLARA, Calif., September 12, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Inc and Imagination Technologies today announced a strategic alliance to accelerate the adoption of RISC-V in the automotive design cycle.

Electrification is changing the way cars are designed and built. “Software-defined vehicles” open up new opportunities to redefine and bundle transport and mobility as services. It also presents enormous challenges in the design, verification and production of connected autonomous vehicles.

The RISC-V open instruction set architecture (ISA) is well positioned for the automotive market. The served addressable market (SAM) for RISC-V in automotive was 4 million cores in 2020, and is expected to reach 150 million cores in 2022 and 2.9 billion cores by 2025 (source: Deloitte). However, uncertainties regarding maturity, performance, and security relative to the more established automotive ISA delayed adoption. The strategic partnership between and Imagination Technologies aims to address these concerns and position RISC-V as a secure, high-performance, consumer-grade computing platform for the automotive industry. Cloud is an end-to-end, closed-loop mixed reality platform that powers the needs of automotive OEMs and suppliers to explore, design, build, and train/validate future-critical compute solutions connection and autonomy. drive cars.’s comprehensive “digital twins” approach provides the near real-time, realistic and repeatable tuning needed to create automotive products that perform well in the stochastic and diverse real world.

“The ability to see a design from the immersive experience of vehicles, occupants, pedestrians, motorcycles and other objects on the road provides OEMs with insight and understanding that can minimize risk, improve time development and increase safety,” said Krishna Raghavan, founder of Raghavan added, “From integration and training to autopilot systems, to merging in-car control and infotainment, to integration with automotive and cloud data services, SoC capabilities .one Cloud will prove to be a crucial part of any automotive business process and development portfolio.”

“With our long automotive delivery experience and diverse IP offerings, Imagination’s GPU, AI, Ethernet and RISC-V processor cores are ideal for automotive-grade security-critical applications. An integration of these IPs in mix- The cloud of reality enables designers to continuously characterize, validate and develop software for automotive use cases.We are excited to partner with to enable the next evolution of automotive design RISC-V,” said Shreyas Derashri, Vice President of Compute at Imagination.

Automotive sub-devices extends from embedded elements (sensors, cameras, computers, computing solutions) to infrastructure elements (traffic lights, smart signs, wireless communication) and vehicles (cars, trucks, motorcycles), all using IP d ‘Imagination Technologies. Cloud provides developers and software systems with the means to interact with the device-sub-x in a closed loop context. Simulation helps designers understand how an automotive product or device might ultimately work. extends this capability to all phases of product design and development, from conceptualization to implementation and deployment stages.


Founded in 2021, offers RISC-V developers an innovative cloud platform that includes prototyping platforms and software debugging tools to provide software developers with a unified and seamless remote experience, which results in significant time and cost savings compared to traditional on-site. resources and development paradigm.’s custom cloud-native environment streamlines access to digital design tools and online platforms to reduce adoption barriers and accelerate development time for RISC-V SoC designers .
