The aim of the OpenRISC project is to create a free, open source computing platform available under the GNU (L)GPL license. Platform must be versatile to fit various target applications. Platform is based on three main ingredients:
However the OpenRISC project does not impose any restrictions on third parties to create their own proprietary implementations of the OpenRISC 1000 architecture or port their own software development tools, operating systems and applications to the OpenRISC.
The OpenRISC 1000 architecture is the latest in the development of modern open architectures and the base for a family of 32- and 64-bit RISC/DSP processors. Open architecture allows a spectrum of chip and system implementations at a variety of price/performance points for a range of applications. Designed with emphasis on performance, simplicity, low power consumption, scalability, and versatility, it targets medium and high performance networking, portable, embedded, and automotive applications.
This is what we would like to see developers/contributers help us with, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org if you want to contribute.
If you have a suggestion for new Wishlist entry, feel free to send it to email@example.com.
