Computer Architecture with an Industrial RISC-V Core [RVfpga] is a self-paced course that provides a practical introduction to using the open-standard RISC-V computer architecture based on a RISC-V system-on-chip (SoC) targeted to a field-programmable gate array (FPGA) and to different simulation tools.
The course provides hands-on experience with RISC-V computer architecture and teaches how to develop and compile C and RISC-V assembly code for the RVfpga SoC. Additionally, participants will learn how to configure the microarchitecture of the SweRV EH1 Core and test its different features using performance counters and industry-standard benchmarks. Finally, the course provides step-by-step instructions on how to execute programs on the Nexys A7 board or by using simulate programs such as:
According to Clyde Seepersad, General Manager of Training & Certification at the Linux Foundation:
“Learning how to use RISC-V to improve security, power consumption and performance of processors will enable people to help shape the future of computer architecture and ensure long-term career growth.”
It comprises ten chapters, each of which requires between 2 and 4 hours, which cover:
There is a Final Exam for those on the Verified Track only.
Upon completion, learners should be able to use RISC-V to improve security, power consumption and performance of processors and help shape the future of computer architecture.
