CEO: Patrick Little
SiFive is building processor cores and custom silicon solutions for AI, high-performance computing and other growing markets based on the open and free RISC-V instruction set architecture
The San Mateo, Calif.-based startup announced in August that it had raised a $61 million Series E funding round led by SK Hynix, with participation from several other investors, including Western Digital Capital, Qualcomm Ventures and Intel Capital. A month later the company appointed former Qualcomm executive Patrick Little as its new CEO.
The company has achieved several other milestones this year, including the introduction of a new RISC-V processor architecture, a massive update to its processor IP portfolio and the launch of a custom silicon business unit dedicated to building domain-specific systems-on-chip.
