Notes from the fourth RISC-V workshop

Linux Weekly News - szo, 2016-07-16 00:16

The lowRISC project, which is an effort to develop a fully open-source, Linux-powered system-on-chip based on the RISC-V architecture, has published notes from the fourth RISC-V workshop. Notably, the post explains, the members of the RISC-V foundation voted to keep the RISC-V instruction-set architecture (ISA) and related standards open and license-free to all parties. There are also accounts included of the work on RISC-V interrupts, heterogeneous multicore RISC-V processors, support for non-volatile memory, and Debian's RISC-V port.

Automotive Grade Linux Releases 2.0 Spec Amid Growing Support (

Linux Weekly News - cs, 2016-07-14 23:39
Over at, Eric Brown writes about the release of Automotive Grade Linux (AGL) Unified Code Base (UCB) 2.0 for in-vehicle infotainment (IVI) systems. "The latest version adds features like audio routing, rear seat display support, the beginnings of an app platform, and new development boards including the DragonBoard, Wandboard, and Raspberry Pi. AGL’s Yocto Project derived UCB distro, which is also based on part on the GENIVI and Tizen automotive specs, was first released in January. UCB 1.0 followed an experimental AGL stack in 2014 and an AGL Requirements Specification in June, 2015. UCB is scheduled for a 3.0 release in early 2017, at which point some automotive manufacturers will finally use it in production cars. Most of the IVI software will be based on UCB, but carmakers can also differentiate with their own features." We looked at AGL UCB 1.0 back in January.
