Online course on SiFive - possible only with license?


(bivin) #1

Hello There,
I’m an online course developer (MOOC’s). I just wanted to design an extensive course on SiFive cores. So just downloaded one version of SiFive core to understand. But I saw a note that for non licensed access, the core is made intentionally confusing. Is that the case ? . I just wanted to understand more about your implementation & to make a course on them. Is that not possible without license ?

Regards,
Bivin

I’m not one of the hardware designers, but
https://github.com/sifive/freedom
has the sources for our free cores.

You can find a list of other free cores here
