Arm has dominated the mobile space since the dawn of smartphones, but systems based on the open source RISC-V instruction set architecture will bring new choices for manufacturers and us, their customers. RISC-V SDKs showed up in the Dart dev channel in Apr 22, but it's still pretty hard to build stuff due to lots of missing dependencies. As always happens with new stuff, the hardware people are waiting for broader software support, and the software people are waiting for a larger hardware installed base. This talk will examine the forces that are driving RISC-V forward, and what developers can expect from a world that will have RISC-V devices, mobile phones, tablets and cloud services.
