The design presented in this paper, called preDRAC, is a RISC-V general purpose processor capable of booting Linux jointly developed by BSC, CIC-IPN, IMB-CNM (CSIC), and UPC. The preDRAC processor is the first RISC-V processor designed and fabricated by a Spanish or Mexican academic institution, and will be the basis of future RISC-V designs jointly developed by these institutions. This paper summarizes the design tasks, for FPGA first and for SoC later, from high architectural level description...
