V for vector: software exploration of the vector extension of RISC-V
Introduction The European Processor Initiative (EPI) is building a new central processing unit (CPU) with European technology. This CPU will bundle an accelerator, based on the open source RISC-V architecture. This accelerator will include support for the upcoming V-extension of RISC-V. At the Barcelona Supercomputing Center (BSC), we have been busy at work building software […]
