Adopt the GD32V series 32-bit general purpose MCU and discover the RISC-V development world now!
Hu Zhenbo, CEO of Nuclei System Technology, said: “GigaDevice is the benchmark for the integrated circuit industry and the prominent supplier for general purpose MCU market in China. Nuclei System Technology currently has the leading RISC-V processor core IP and tool chain capabilities and it is at the forefront of R&D and industrialization of RISC-V embedded processors. The cooperation between the two parties will give RISC-V a strong base, bringing new breakthroughs and forming a new pattern for general-purpose MCUs in the AI and IOT era. We are working together with customers to achieve win-win results.”
Deng Yu, executive VP of GigaDevice, general manager of GigaDevice MCU BU, said: “The RISC-V system has globally emerged and become a rapid development trend in the semiconductor industry for applications such as industrial control, Internet of Things, intelligent terminals and others. GigaDevice is the first in the industry to launch 32-bit general-purpose MCU products based on RISC-V architecture and continues to build and strengthen the RISC-V development ecosystem. GigaDevice will further meet the market’s differentiated demand for open architecture and cost advantages. We will continuously enrich the GD32 MCU ‘department store’, providing more innovative choices to our customers.”
Continuously built RISC-V development ecosystem
GigaDevice is providing rich and comprehensive support for the GD32 ecosystem, including a variety of development boards and application software for the RISC-V development ecosystem. Users of the GD32V family can easily implement their design ideas with the new development tools and software libraries. These new development tools include the GD32VF103V-EVAL full-featured evaluation board along with the GD32VF103R-START, GD32VF103C-START and GD32VF103T-START entry-level learning boards, each one with a different chip package and number of pins, making it easy for users to develop and debug their projects. In addition, GigaDevice provides the GD32VF103-BLDC motor control development board and GD-LINK debugging mass production tool to more fully integrate the GD32 RISC-V design plan.
GigaDevice also cooperates with Nuclei System Technology to provide Nuclei Studio, a free integrated development environment for GD32V MCU series. This new IDE is based on the open source Eclipse environment and integrates RISC-V related tools such as GCC and OpenOCD. With Nuclei Studio, users can quickly get started and complete a series of development processes such as code writing, cross-compilation, online debugging, and programming. Third-party partners also offer more IDE and tool options, including Huawei IoT Studio, SEGGER J-Link V10 and Embedded Studio. Embedded operating systems including μC/OS II, FreeRTOS, RT-Thread, and Huawei LiteOS are also fully integrated and can provide connectivity with the cloud. All of these tools have greatly simplified the development of the RISC-V based MCUs.
Start the development experience of RISC-V now!
The new GD32V series meets industrial grade high reliability and temperature standards, offering a continuous supply guarantee of at least ten years. The chip’s electrostatic discharge (ESD) protection level can reach 5KV in human body discharge (HBM) mode and 2KV in device discharge mode (CDM), which are much higher than industry safety standards, making the chips suitable for more harsh environments. As a result, the end products are more reliable and durable.
The new GD32VF103 series RISC-V MCU samples and development tools are now available. For more information, please contact your local GigaDevice Sales Office and authorized representatives, or visit the product website www.gigadevice.com.
