That is RED-V, I am Going In

In what gave the impression of a very long time in the past in a galaxy a long way, a long way away (November 2021), SparkFun introduced now not one, however two RISC-V forums. The SparkFun RED-V RedBoard is in a regular Arduino Uno R3 footprint, whilst the SparkFun RED-V Factor Plus is in a Feather-compatible footprint. They function the Freedom E310 SoC, which brings with it the RISC-V instruction set structure (ISA). By way of now, the ones taken with creating with those new forums had been ready to get them of their palms to start out enjoying with them, however since these days is Might the 4th (aka Megastar Wars Day) we made up our minds to take any other glance and take a look at the forums and the assets we have now created to assist reinforce them!

SparkFun RED-V Factor Plus – SiFive RISC-V FE310 SoC



The SparkFun RED-V RedBoard comes within the acquainted Arduino Uno R3 shape issue and comprises the SiFive Freedom E310 core, 32MB of QSPI flash, an NXP K22 ARM Cortex-M4 for USB connectivity and running as a JTAG interface, and a Qwiic connector to make I2C simple. The fashionable USB-C connector makes it simple to program, and for extra complex customers preferring to make use of the ability and pace {of professional} equipment, we have now additionally uncovered the JTAG connector. Moreover, it comes programmed with a easy bootloader, making the RED-V one of the best ways to start out prototyping and creating your RISC‑V programs.

After all, in case you are on the lookout for one thing somewhat extra compact at a lower cost level, we additionally elevate the SparkFun RED-V Factor Plus. This little board is provided with the similar options because the RedBoard model however in a small, Feather-compatible footprint! With this footprint, you’ll be able to profit from a defend possibility in case you do not want to make use of our Qwiic Attach Machine.
