The next goal of the domestic chip architecture is 60 billion, completely breaking the hegemony of the US chip architecture

At the RISC-V China Summit, Ali Pingtou released the RISC-V architecture flat head "Wujian 600", which Ali Pingtou called a chip architecture platform, because it not only designs chips and sells them to enterprises, but also helps Domestic chip companies reduce the difficulty of chip development and promote the sales of RISC-V architecture chips to 60 billion. In July, RISC-V executives said that the shipment of RISC-V architecture chips had exceeded 10 billion, and it took only 12 years from the emergence of the RISC-V architecture to the breakthrough of 10 billion chip shipments. ARM, which has monopolized the mobile chip market, has been around for 5 years, and it took 17 years for ARM-based chips to break through 10 billion. Then ARM achieved the goal of monopolizing the mobile chip market. The important force promoting the development of the RISC-V architecture is undoubtedly Chinese chips. In 2018, China established the RISC-V Alliance, and then domestic chips joined in one after another. So far, 12 of the 19 senior members of RISC-V are Chinese chip companies. It highlights the important role of Chinese chips in RISC-V. Among these Chinese chip companies, Ali Pingtou is undoubtedly the first chip company to support the RISC-V architecture, and it is also the first to achieve success. It is reported that the shipments of Xuantie chips developed by Ali Pingtou based on the RISC-V architecture have exceeded 3 billion. The achievements made by Ali Pingtou are the cooperation with many Chinese chip companies. Today, the "Wujian 600" chip platform launched by Ali Pingtou has not only completed the core architecture of RISC-V, but also successfully adapted to many operating systems such as Linux and Android, which further reduces the need for domestic chips to develop RISC-V architecture chips. The difficulty will also help to promote the development of the RISC-V architecture to more industries, and accelerate the development of the RISC-V architecture chip through collective efforts to move towards 60 billion chip sales. At present, the mainstream chip architectures in the world are Intel's X86 and ARM. X86 monopolizes the PC processor and server chip market, ARM monopolizes the mobile chip market, and the RISC-V architecture opens up the situation in the IoT chip market, gradually forming a three-pronged situation. . Intel is an American company. Although ARM is a British company, many technologies of ARM come from the United States. ARM also has a R&D center in the United States. Therefore, ARM is deeply influenced by the United States. Before the United States took measures against Huawei, Huawei was unable to obtain the latest updates from ARM. Architecture authorization, which makes Chinese chips vigilant. It is precisely because of these factors that Chinese chips have joined the RISC-V camp in large numbers since 2019, including Huawei HiSilicon, which has made important contributions to the development of ARM. Chinese chips actively support RISC-V, because the RISC-V architecture is a brand-new architecture. European and American chip companies have not obtained the advantages of RISC-V, and RISC-V has also taken the initiative to move its headquarters from the United States to Switzerland in order to obtain the support of Chinese chips. . China is the world's largest market, and Chinese chips already have good strength. ARM can gain an advantage in the mobile phone market without the efforts of Chinese chips. Later, Chinese chips also promoted ARM to open up in the PC and server chip markets. Today, Chinese chips Start to push RISC-V, maybe Chinese chips can also promote RISC-V to give ARM and Intel a heavy blow. Now that the RISC-V architecture has gained a firm foothold in IoT chips, Alibaba Pingtou, a leading technology leader, has chosen to further open up the RISC-V architecture and adapt it to Linux, Android and other systems, and jointly push it into the mobile chip and PC processor markets with domestic chips. , is expected to further erode the market dominated by Intel and ARM, thereby completely breaking the US hegemony in chip architecture.
