SiFive Brings in Mobiveil as Newest Partner in the DesignShare Economy

SiFive, the leading provider of commercial RISC-V processor IP, today announced that Mobiveil, a provider of Serial Interconnect IP blocks and platforms targeted for Flash Storage, IoT and Communication markets, has joined the growing DesignShare economy.

Mobiveil will make available its high-speed, serial interconnect IP blocks such as PCI Express, RapidIO, Memory Controllers and AXI Interconnect Fabric for DesignShare users to accelerate RISC-V based SOC development.

“At Mobiveil, we’re dedicated to helping customers meet their product development goals within budget and on time,” said Ravi Thummarukudy, CEO, Mobiveil. “It’s why DesignShare aligns with our values. We hope this partnership lowers the barriers for all system designers to bring their innovations to life.”

Any company, inventor or maker can harness the power of custom silicon with little to no upfront risk through the SiFive DesignShare program. To lower the costs of bringing a chip from design to realization, DesignShare partners like Mobiveil offer pre-integrated solutions that enable users to develop their prototypes without the investment in upfront engineering costs typically required.

“The DesignShare initiative streamlines the process of IP acquisition for system designers,” said Shafy Eltoukhy, VP of operations and head of DesignShare at SiFive. “Partners like Mobiveil share our passion to reduce the number of obstacles that keep customers from creating prototypes, and significantly increase the new number of silicon design starts.”

Since DesignShare launched last year, the ecosystem has grown to include a wide range of IP solutions, from debug and trace technology to reconfigurable FPGA.
