RISC-V Open Source Software Implementations

This document contains a list of Open Source RISC-V software implementations (user mode simulator simulators, full system emulators and dynamic binary translators.

Spike

URL: https://github.com/riscv/riscv-isa-sim/

Spike is the official RISC-V Instruction Set Simulator. Spike serves as the behavioural reference model for the RISC-V ISA. Spike is easily extended to add new instructions. Spike supports RV32GC and RV64GC, and has Debug and GDB support.

ANGEL

URL: https://riscv.org/software-tools/riscv-angel/

ANGEL is a Javascript RISC-V ISA (RV64) Simulator that boots and runs riscv-linux with BusyBox inside a web browser.

QEMU

URL: https://github.com/riscv/riscv-qemu/

QEMU, the fast processor emulator, is a multiplatform user mode simulator and a full system emulator that emulates CPUs via dynamic binary translation. It supports a wide variety of architectures. riscv-qemu supports RV32GC and RV64GC and has GDB support.

RISCVEMU

URL: https://bellard.org/riscvemu/

RISCVEMU is a full system emulator for the RISC-V architecture. RISCVEMU is notable in that it supports RV32GC, RV64GC and RV128GC as well as VirtIO console, block and network devices.

Gem5

URL: http://gem5.org/

The gem5 simulator is a modular platform for computer-system architecture research, encompassing system-level architecture as well as processor microarchitecture. It features a detailed pipeline model for a wide variety of architecures.

rv8

URL: https://github.com/rv8-io/rv8/

rv8 is a simulation suite that features a user mode simulator, a full system emulator, a dynamic binary translator along with metadata tools and a model for generating artefacts based on instruction set metadata. rv8 implements an 16550-like UART and supports RV32GC and RV64GC.
