The Indian effort got funded two years ago and two cores have been released as open source cores. Wonder who told you that funding will start only in March ! If you need more info on this effort, please ask me, I am the tech lead. Full SoCs will be released by summer. Please see bitbucket dot org slash casl. We are probably also the only risc v effort targetting the high end server market.

Rick, great article as usual!

A couple of additonal observations.

1.) The "google engineer' is Ron Minnich the founder of Coreboot.

2.) To me the highlight of the conference was the presentation on the 2nd day showing the world's first microprocessor (RISC-V) with integrated optical interconnects that was published in Nature. An incredible example of what open collaboration can achieve!!
