Qualcomm and Google Collaborate on RISC-V Chip for Wearable Devices


Summary: Chip designer Qualcomm partners with Google to develop wearable devices using RISC-V technology, enabling low power and high-performance custom processors within the Android ecosystem.

Qualcomm has announced a collaboration with Google to create wearable devices, such as smartwatches, using chips based on RISC-V technology. RISC-V is an open-source technology that competes with proprietary technology from Arm Holdings. It can be used for various applications, ranging from smartphone chips to AI processors. Despite concerns about China’s exploitation of open collaboration, US companies continue to advance RISC-V technology. Qualcomm plans to globally commercialize the RISC-V-based wearables, benefiting the Android ecosystem by offering low power and high-performance custom processors.
