Conor Patrick – U2F Zero / SoloKeys

Conor started working on U2F Zero back in 2016 because he wanted there to be an open source U2F token. Now he and other core collaborators are working on a new version, Solo, to support FIDO2 and NFC. Their vision is to make an open, professional token for the masses and help FIDO2 adoption. Please consider backing their upcoming Kickstarter and sign up on their wait list.

Microsemi – IGLOO2 RISC-V Creative Development Board

The Future-designed Creative Development Board, featuring Microsemi’s IGLOO2 FPGA is pre-programmed with a RISC-V core and peripherals. The IGLOO2 RISC-V Creative Development Board boasts a 25K logic element (LE) FPGA, offering the lowest cost of entry for both software and hardware engineers who want to evaluate and implement their own unique designs. The out of the box demo is the RISC-V core running a hello world demo.

Greenwaves Technologies is donating 2 GAPUINO GAP8 Developer Kits to the open source community!

GAP8 is industry’s first fully programmable, multi-core RISC-V Processor focused on enabling artificial intelligence at the very edge of the network. We believe that it will promote massive deployment of low-cost battery operated wireless edge devices for IoT applications such as image recognition, people and objects counting, machine health monitoring, home security, speech recognition and consumer robotics. GAP8 is uniquely optimized to execute a large spectrum of image and audio algorithms including convolution neural network inference with extreme energy efficiency.

Key features:

  • Autonomous operation for years using a battery or PV cell
  • 8 GOPS at a few tens of mW
  • Fully programmable in C/C++
  • 200 MOPS at 1mW
  • Minimum 2µA standby current
  • Integrated design results in low system cost
