China aggressively develops RISC-V architecture processor

To reduce reliance on foreign chip technologies such as ARM, China is developing a new generation of chips based on the RISC-V open source instruction set architecture. Under China’s 2025 plan, china’s semiconductor self-sufficiency will reach 40 percent by 2020 and 70 percent by 2025, while China’s self-sufficiency rate of only 15 percent by 2018 is questionable.

Both the U.S.-China trade war and the Trump administration’s export restrictions on China have prompted major Chinese technology companies to look for alternatives.

Alibaba’s PingTouGe Semiconductor has developed RISC-V-based Xuan Tie 910 processors, Huawei recently joined the RISC-V Foundation, and its chip subsidiary, Haisi, is apparently developing RISC-V chips.

China is pushing for adoption of RISC-V architecture, while chip companies in the U.S., Europe and Japan are lagging behind in RISC-V adoption.
