Open to the core - collaborative engineering for open source silicon and tools

We produce high-quality, security-focused, open, flexible IP via projects like the OpenTitan silicon root of trust ( Our expertise includes processor and SoC design — with a particular focus on hardware security, design verification, RISC-V tools, and the LLVM compiler. Our mission is to unlock the potential of open source silicon and enable its widespread adoption, with more credible, accessible and efficient silicon solutions than exist today.
