Qualcomm, Intel, Samsung Invest in US-based Chip-maker

Founded in 2015 and headquartered in San Francisco, SiFive is being seen as an emerging competitor to UK-based chip-maker ARM Holdings

After cutting ties with Huawei because of US government’s ban on the Chinese tech giant, Qualcomm, Intel andSamsung have invested money in a US-based chip-maker SiFive that producescomputer chips based on the RISC-Vinstruction set architecture.

According to The Information, the chip-design company has raised $65.4 million as part of its latest funding round, Android Authority reported on Saturday.

To create RISC-V-based chip designs, SiFive teams up with other tech companies and churns out new designs in one to three months, promising to deliver sample chips “within weeks”.

Usually, gadgets such as smart speakers, smart watches, and smartphones use processors based on Intel’s x86 and Arm’s instruction sets.
