We think that some of the best, yet most underutilized 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! SiFive was founded to democratize access to custom silicon.
Let us know your proposal below - we’ll be considering projects for SiFive partnership which could involve access to custom CPU IP, design support, and even help delivering working samples of your chip!


How can I join?
Fill out the form at the end of this page 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 at the First Annual RISC-V Summit, to be held Dec 3-5, 2018, in Santa Clara, California.
What are SiFive's partnership goals? 
SiFive is most excited to partner with innovative projects that explore new and creative uses for RISC-V technology. 
Who can submit a proposal?
You may apply either individually, or as a team. Project proposals are welcome from any non-commercial entities, including Universities, schools, students, research groups, non-profits, or individuals. 


Please submit your proposals before Oct 31, 2018
