RISC-V FPGA (RVfpga) is a teaching package that provides a set of instructions, tools, and labs that show how to:

  • Target a commercial RISC-V system-on-chip (SoC) to an FPGA
  • Program the RISC-V SoC
  • Add more functionality to the RISC-V SoC

The RVfpga Package provides:

  • a comprehensive, freely distributed, complete RISC-V course
  • a hands-on and easily accessible way to learn about RISC-V processors and the RISC-V ecosystem
  • a RISC-V system targeted to low-cost FPGAs, which are readily available at many universities and companies.
