We're moving full speed ahead toward a test wafer run, sponsorship to fund Open-V is still a real (if slowly evolving) possibility, and we're extending the campaign one final time, without impacting the main production schedule. Read the full update.
As we work at full speed toward the May tapeout to qualify several blocks on 180 nm CMOS, we figured it would be a good time to pause just for a moment to give you a taste of what's required to accomplish this kind of project. Read the full update.
We're extending the Open-V campaign by 30 days in the hope that by then we will have official sign-off on a grant from a very large organization to provide the remaining funds needed to make the Open-V microcontroller a reality. Read on for details and what this means to backers. Read the full update.
In this update, we'll describe the Open-V microcontroller's Arduino compatibility, what it took to get there, and what it means for our backers. Read the full update.
Today, we're excited to announce a collaboration with SiFive, a company founded by the creators of RISC-V and dedicated to open source silicon. In the rest of this update, we'll describe the collaboration in detail, what it means for the Open-V microcontroller, and what it means to you, our supporters. Read the full update.
To make a long story short, we're extending the Open-V campaign by 45 days and hope to release some exciting news very soon to justify this extension. Read the full update.
The Open-V has the potential to greatly boost and democratize hardware security. As a concrete step toward realizing this potential, we’re happy to announce today that the Open-V will include, at no additional cost, a fully open, state-of-the-art, thermal noise-based true random number generator (TRNG) peripheral.

You can now program real Open-V dev boards from anywhere in the world and see the results on a live video feed! Here's our first demo - blinking the dev board LEDs. Read the full update.
