Our visitors had the opportunity to discuss with the GigaDevice expert team about all the new technology trends, explore our products and demo solutions and witnessed the world’s first RISC-V 32-bit general purpose MCU.

World’s First RISC-V MCU

GigaDevice is a Silver member of the RISC-V Foundation, a member of China RISC-V Alliance and a member of China RISC-V Industry Consortium. GD32 MCU uses optimized RISC-V commercial cores to provide a series of world-leading products, while it provides high performance, easy-to-use and cost-effective MCU. In addition to this, GigaDevice provides a complete development ecosystem so that its users can easily develop their application efficiently.

The RISC-V open source ISA (Instruction Set Architecture) has drawn a lot of attention in the industry, whilst the GD32VF103 series RISC-V core MCU is a brand new MCU product for the market. The GD32VF103, a new member of the GD32 MCU family, is a commercial 32-bit general-purpose MCU using the RISC-V core for the first time in the world. It differentiates from soft core solutions implemented on FPGAs, but is similar to the Arm core General-purpose MCU and now in mass production.

Embedded Award 2020

The new GD32VF103 RISC-V MCU is well suited for the new market needs that have emerged, such as the need for open-source architectures and the need for new chips in the IoT market. The new RISC-V MCU can help the users to differentiate their products from their competitors and provide new solutions. The GD32VF103 can offer an innovative solution in IoT, Consumer, Industrial, Edge Computing, Artificial Intelligence and Vertical Market.
