Renode is Antmicro’s open source development and testing framework which lets you simulate physical hardware systems - including both the CPU, peripherals, sensors, environment and wired or wireless connections between nodes.

Renode helps solve new engineering challenges presented by building new RISC‑V based or heterogeneous, multi-architecture systems:

  • drastically reduce design cycles
  • rapidly explore architecture trade spaces
  • engage in effective hardware/software co-design

Renode’s open source nature combined with professional support from Antmicro make it a great choice for enabling development communities to experience your new RISC-V platform in a software-centric workflow that encourages continuous testing and reuse:

  • recommended and used by players in the RISC-V Foundation
  • open source license, modular building blocks, flexible structure - a natural fit for the open and extendible RISC-V ISA
  • easy to create new hardware configurations (existing and in-development)
