SiFive announced the Arduino Cinque, the new RISC-V based development board | Open Electronics
The Arduino Cinque is the second RISC-V based development board put out by SiFive (the first being the HiFive1) compatible with the Arduino platform. “By partnering with a pioneer in open-source hardware, SiFive can further advance the progress of open custom silicon”
Board has SiFive’s Freedom E310 customizable SoC, which runs off the E31 CPU Coreplex (32-bit RV32IMAC Core): the Freedom E310 claims to be the fastest microcontroller on the market, capable of running at 320 MHz.
The Arduino Cinque will also have built-in Wi-Fi and Bluetooth capabilities with the inclusion of an efficient, low-power Espressif ESP32 Wi-Fi/Bluetooth hybrid chip.
