THANK YOU! Looking Forward to 2017

Thank you so much for making the HiFive1 board a huge success! The passion that all of you have demonstrated for open-source, RISC-V, and us, has brightened our holidays and made us proud to have worked so hard on this project.

Shipping Status

I’m happy to report that all of the Founder’s Edition and Early Access units that have been ordered have been shipped out! Any new orders of the Early Access units will ship within one business day. There are still a few remaining, so grab them quick before you’re forced to wait until February for the next batch.

What’s next?

For those of you with a board, let us know what you’re doing with them! We’re happy to see feedback, bug reports, suggestions for improvements, etc. In fact, there’s a robust community at https://forums.sifive.com/ where people are getting answers to their questions about HiFive1, RISC-V, and the FE310. You can also follow us on Twitter @SiFiveInc for the latest updates and news from SiFive. Tweet us a picture of you and your board and we’ll send you a SiFive t-Shirt! :)
