About Andes


Andes Technology Corporation

After 16 years effort starting from scratch, Andes Technology Corporation is now a leading embedded processor intellectual property supplier in the world. We devote ourselves in developing high-performance/low-power 32/64 bit processors and their associated SoC platforms to serve the rapidly growing embedded system applications worldwide.

As the features of electronic devices are becoming more and more versatile, customers demand new generations of SoC solutions for better scalability, flexibility, performance, cost and power saving. However, the diversity of emerging consumer market has driven sophisticated design requirement that incurs vital difficulty for traditional component providers to offer cost-effective solution in time.

The innovative configurable platform solution allows Andes’ customers to construct unique system architecture and hardware/software partitioning to gain best optimization in all aspects. With possession of technologies in the areas of processor, system architecture, operating system, software toolchains development, and SoC VLSI implementation, Andes can work closely with customers to shorten their time-to-market with quality design.

Andes Technology USA Corporation

Andes Technology USA Corp., the headquarters of North America operations of Hsinchu, Taiwan-based Andes Technology Corporation, was established in 2015 as a California corporation coincident with Andes Technology Corp. becoming a Founding and Premier Member of RISC-V International. Recognizing that the RISC-V instruction set architecture (ISA) could become a major new product line for the company, the U.S. operation was formed to be nearby early customer adopters of the new ISA. The U.S. subsidiary established an R&D lab shortly thereafter and began developing architectures for the high-end RISC-V processors

Emerson Hsiao, Chief Operating Officer heads the office, located in the heart of Silicon Valley in San Jose.  In June 2018, the U.S. operation added its R&D facility in Portland, Oregon to attract engineers in the Pacific Northwest and Canada. To date, the U.S. operation continues to develop new high-end CPU processor architecture. Its most significant achievement is the development of the first RISC-V vector architecture based on the RISC-V International RVV specification. Developed in under a year the first RISC-V vector architecture was based on version V0.8 of the specification. The Andes engineering team rapidly productized this for a large OEM design win.
