Canonical at RISC-V Summit 2023

Felicia Jia

on 24 October 2023

The RISC-V Summit is a premier annual event that brings together the global RISC-V community – including technical, industry, domain, ecosystem and special interest groups who define the architecture’s specifications. All the experts will meet in Santa Clara, California, to share technology breakthroughs, industry milestones, and case studies, to network and build relationships, and to experience much more. Canonical is proud to sponsor the RISC-V Summit again. Come meet us at booth G3!

Register for the event now!

Empowering RISC-V with open source innovation from Ubuntu

RISC-V has incredible potential and has become a competitive ISA in multiple markets. With this in mind, porting Ubuntu to RISC-V to become the reference OS for early adopters was a natural choice. 

We are proud to collaborate with RISC-V partners to enable Ubuntu on various RISC-V boards and accelerate the time-to-market by letting the developers focus on their core applications without having to worry about the stability of the underlying operating system. Ubuntu has been enabled on several developer boards including, SiFive’s HiFive Unmatched, StarFive’s VisionFive and VisionFive2, Allwinner’s Nezha, Sipeed’s LicheeRV, and Microchip’s PolarFire® SoC FPGA Icicle Kit

Expanding strategic partnership with SiFive

SiFive, one of the RISC-V CPU IP leaders, joins Canonical presence at RISC-V Summit 2023 in our booth as well as in the Developer Zone. 

Join us and check out Ubuntu running on the HiFive Pro P550, the most performant RISC-V developer platform on the market. The demo will highlight the unique performance benefits of SiFive’s Performance P550 cores.

Join our presentations

Canonical experts will run a presentation during the event, please check the details below.

“The future of Ubuntu on RISC-V” 

In this session we will discuss what it takes for a Linux distribution to ace the support for RISC-V. The speaker will present challenges and future plans at Canonical to ensure that Ubuntu and the rest of Canonical’s stack is fully optimized for RISC-V, and Ubuntu’s ability to support vendor specific optimizations. 

Date & Time: 3:40 pm – 3:50 pm on Wednesday, November 8

Location: Expo Hall – Exhibit Hall A – Demo Theater 

Presented by Gordan Markuš, Director of Silicon Alliances, Canonical

Meet the team

While at the conference, make sure to come to say hi to our team at the Canonical Ubuntu booth G3 and discover:

  • Details about the availability of Ubuntu on RISC-V
  • Live demos of Ubuntu running on the latest RISC-V boards
  • Insights into how you can combine RISC-V open ISA and Ubuntu open-source software to build projects for a range of use cases, from embedded devices to datacenter and HPC deployments. 

You will also get access to relevant resources and discuss your specific needs with the experts with our team.

We hope to see you there!
