RISC-V (pronounced ‘risk-five’) is an open instruction set architecture (ISA) based on reduced instruction set computing (RISC). What sets it apart from other ISAs is that, RISC-V ISA can be freely used for any purpose, permitting anyone to design, manufacture and sell RISC-V chips and software. While not the first Continue Reading

You may not have noticed, but modern vehicles are filled with intelligent controllers that are hidden away in small spaces. Even basic or mid-range vehicles there are likely to be around 100 electronic control units (ECUs) fitted and probably more than this in high-end models. The ECUs manage almost all Continue Reading

How Cloud-Based CAE Is Changing Prototyping: An Interview with Ian Campbell, CEO of OnScale

Traditional prototyping methods are evolving. The advent of complex designs such as ultrasonic sensors has raised the bar for simulations. OnScale CEO Ian Campbell says they’ve created cloud-based CAE (computer-assisted engineering) software to make this kind of difficult design more attainable and affordable—and put a shelf life on the days (515) 348-8027
