We think some of the best and most innovative ideas come from academia, research institutions, students and the open-source community.

Do you have a great idea for a chip? Do you have an IP block, such as an accelerator, a co-processor, or a security block that you want to see in silicon? Or, maybe you’re working on a chip and need a custom RISC-V core to make it a reality?

We want to hear from you! Tell us about your idea at sifivecontest.com and we will consider your project for a SiFive partnership, which could involve access to custom CPU IP, design support, and even help delivering working samples of your chip!


How do I submit my proposal?
Fill out the form at sifivecontest.com and let us know how your idea will take advantage of RISC-V and/or SiFive custom chip solutions. We’ll announce any projects we decide to partner with during the month of December, 2018.

Who can submit a proposal?
You may apply either individually, or as a team. Project proposals are welcome from any Indian non-commercial entities, including academic institutions, students, research groups, non-profits or individuals.

What are SiFive's partnership goals?
SiFive is most excited to partner on innovative projects that explore new and creative uses for RISC-V technology.

Please submit your proposals before November 30, 2018
