In November 2019, the RISC-V International Open Source Laboratory (RIOS Lab) officially unveiled. Under the leadership of 2017 A.M. Turing Award Winner Dr. David Patterson, and operational support from TBSI, RIOS Lab will conduct cutting-edge research in RISC-V hardware and software technology. Patterson first proposed the Reduced Instruction Set (RISC) system, an open and free instruction set architecture enabling a new era of processor innovation through open standard collaboration.
The RIOS Lab will build a RISC-V global innovation network rooted in Shenzhen, contribute to industrial innovation needs of the city, focus on the field of RISC-V open source instruction set CPU research, and cultivate high-end talents in processor and open source hardware design.
He is the Director of RIOS Lab and Honorary doctor of Tsinghua University. He was also elected to both AAAS societies, the National Academy of Engineering, the National Academy of Sciences, the Silicon Valley Engineering Hall of Fame, and to be a Fellow of the Computer History Museum.
