Hyperion Core Joins RISC-V International as a Strategic Member

Düsseldorf, 30 October, 2023 – Hyperion Core Joins RISC-V International as a Strategic Member

Hyperion Core, the company that brings affordable AI processing to the end-users, has joined RISC-V International, the non-profit organization spearheading the open standard RISC-V Instruction Set Architecture (ISA). By becoming a Strategic Member, Hyperion Core aims to fuel a revolution in processor design and contribute to the already thriving RISC-V ecosystem.

“Hyperion-Core reinvented the out-of-order microprocessor and merged it with the advantages of low-power, high throughput data flow engines, fully relying on the RISC-V ISA and toolchain. As a Strategic Member of RISC-V International, Hyperion Core will contribute to and benefit from a robust ecosystem,” said Peter W Weber, Chairman and Founder of Hyperion Core. “Customers can seamlessly integrate Hyperion Core chips into their products, leveraging the vast RISC-V software ecosystem.”

“The addition of Hyperion Core as a Strategic Member of RISC-V International will further RISC-V’s mission by offering an alternative to traditional processors in the embedded sector,” said Calista Redmond, CEO of RISC-V International. “Hyperion Core’s strategic investment in RISC-V underscores the RISC-V architecture’s scalability, adaptability, and appeal to startups.”

By joining the RISC-V International, Hyperion Core’s customers can now leverage the extensive RISC-V software ecosystem, simplifying integration into their products. Hyperion Core’s unique architecture will further drive industry adoption of RISC-V, particularly in the embedded sector, by offering a compelling alternative to non-RISC-V processors. First chips are expected to be available second half of 2025.


About RISC-V International

RISC-V International is the non-profit home of the open standard RISC-V Instruction Set Architecture (ISA), related specifications, and stakeholder community. More than 3,800 RISC-V members across 70 countries contribute and collaborate to define RISC-V open specifications as well as convene and govern related technical, industry, domain, and special interest groups. RISC-V combines a modular technical approach with an open, royalty-free license model — meaning that anyone, anywhere can benefit from the IP contributed and produced by RISC-V. RISC-V enables the community to share technical investment, contribute to the strategic future, create more rapidly, enjoy unprecedented design freedom, and substantially reduce the cost of innovation.
