If anyone out there who has used or looked into Andes CPU, what's your own experience and pros and cons of their CPU IP?

Actually, the Andes is seldom to be heard. Although its IP core is widely used on many hardware modules, we only know the name of IC manufactuer.

 

It is quite different from ARM or MIPS. These two are known to every hardware and software engineer. They have already established their ecosystem. The IC manufactuer would like to say theire CPU is based on ARM or MIPS architecture when they introduce their CPU to engineers. However, Andes was always silent. Noone would like to add its name, because seldom engineers are hear about it.

 

In a word, there is a long long way for Andes to rumble in CPU war. In the CPU world, it is quite different from peripherial modules.

At Mindtree we have integrated our Bluetooth Smart IP (Both controller and software stack) with Andes CPU for a lead customer in China and have not had any major issues.

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
