Addressing Criticism of RISC-V Microprocessors #RISCV @erikengheim @Medium
Erik Engheim cuts through the misconceptions of RISC-V when compared to ARM processor architectures. There seem to be a bit of rivalry between the ARM and RISC-V camps developing. It is perhaps not without reason. RISC-V and ARM represent quite radically different philosophies about how a RISC chip should be designed.
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
