Sold Out, Refresh on the Way

Thank you everyone for making HiFive1 one of the most successful RISC-V platforms. When we first started the project, we could never have imagined all the cool projects and all the open source and commercial software being ported to RISC-V. We are grateful for all the contributions the community has made. Due to its popularity, the HiFive1s are sold out. Don’t worry, we are releasing a refresh of the HiFive1 with new features in Q1, 2019. More details to come as we approach the launch. If you haven’t already, please subscribe to project updates to stay informed.
