Allwinner Technology today announced the launch of 「D1」 processor, which is the world’s first mass-produced application processor equipped with T-Head Xuantie 906 based on RISC-V, providing an exciting new smart chipset for immediate use in today’s developing Artificial Intelligence of Things (AIoT) market.
「D1」is the result of close collaboration with T-Head Xuantie 906, combined with Allwinner’s long experience deep accumulation in high-definition video processing and system architecture. 「D1」integrates self-developed on-chip high-speed interconnection bus NSI and rich application interfaces to provide high-performance heterogeneous multi-core computing processing and excellent graphics acceleration capabilities. It meets the needs of different scenarios in today’s AIoT era in terms of underlying performance and specification design, and can be used in smart cities, smart cars, smart commercial displays, smart home appliances, smart offices, and other markets.
「D1」provides stable technical support and sustainability for reliable use across a variety of differentiated AIoT applications, meeting the long-term needs for independent and reliable technology supply chains. It will play an important role in AIoT customized products.
With the continuous growth of global RISC-V alliance coupled with Allwinner’s long-term practical experience in SoC technology and customer service, RISC-V developers are empowered to implement rapid design, porting and application with full support from Allwinner [D1]’s rich ecosystem to resolve technical problems across a range of projects. Allwinner will also provide [D1] developers with both self-developed Tina Linux OS and open source Fedora OS support.
With the release of [D1], Allwinner is actively cooperating with today’s innovative developers and core ecosystem partners to take full advantage of RISC-V features and performance potential for AIoT application scenario production. In the future, Allwinner decisively pursues open innovation and leads further customer value growth in a way of reliability and sustainability.
