According to reports, the IP design department of Nordic, a well-known manufacturer in the Bluetooth chip field, recently launched a RISC-V architecture core design team to develop open-source architecture microcontroller cores for the company's chip products.

At present, Nordic's wireless SoC products mainly use Arm architecture cores, and the shipment has exceeded 1 billion.

The report pointed out that Nordic launched a low-power LTE-M/NB-IoT cellular IoT chip in 2018, and in 2020 the company acquired the Wi-Fi design team and related IP technology assets of Imagination Technology. The establishment of a RISC-V architecture core design team shows that Nordic will expand its product layout in the future.
