Internship - 16 bits Risc-V - 6 months - Paris, France





Project Description

The Risc-V project is intended for 32 and 64 bits CPUs. For very low end products it may be interesting to downgrade it to a 16 bits version. The target of this internship is:
To evaluate the feasibility of a 16 bits version
Highlight the limitations
Estimate the area of such a CPU and compare it to our in-house 16 bits CPUs
Estimate the workload for a modification of the 32 bits C compiler


Expected results

  • A Verilog database of the 16 bits Risc-V CPU
  • A test suite in SystemVerilog
  • A report with area, performance and power consumption
  • Few hints on GCC constraints


Your profile

  • Master 2

  • Familiar with CPU architectures
  • Basic knowledge of VHDL and/or [System] Verilog
