A new toy to explore
From lot of time now, I think more than 2 years, I reading stuffs regarding RISC-V CPU and instruction. Since I did lot of work on ARM devboard and create some package for my NAS for example I would like to test RISC-V too.
And I found this Vision Five 2 board card and I bought one ! The Vision Five 2 is a RISC-V development board created by StarFive
Overview of the hardware
