I was wondering why approval was needed for this FPGA getting started package?
RISC-V RTL cores are all over github, with different open source licenses (some with commercial restriction), but anyone can download them and put them on an FPGA board. I’d like to understand the strategy behind this open sourcing of MIPS RTL on FPGA. Can you clarify? Thanks.
MIPS Open cares deeply about ensuring that MIPS Open users are authorized to receive and use MIPS Open deliverables under the law. When a party accepts a MIPS Open license agreement, MIPS Open will verify (for example) that the party seeking the license is not on a denied person or entity list under US export laws, before MIPS Open approves a MIPS Open deliverable download.
