RISC-V, the open-source chip architecture at the heart of Quintauris’s mission, is based on the principles of Reduced Instruction Set Computer (RISC). Originally developed at the University of California, Berkeley in 2010, RISC-V has gained significant attention in recent years for its flexibility, scalability, and cost-effectiveness, making it an attractive alternative to proprietary chip architectures. The formation of Quintauris is a pivotal step in promoting RISC-V’s adoption and furthering innovation in the semiconductor industry.

Alexander Kocher, an industry veteran with extensive experience in the automotive software domain, has been appointed as the CEO of Quintauris. Kocher’s background, including leadership roles at Elektrobit and Wind River’s automotive business unit, positions him well to steer Quintauris towards its goals.

Kocher expressed his enthusiasm about the opportunities that Quintauris will bring to the industry. Under his leadership, the company aims to introduce innovative and scalable solutions in hardware development. Quintauris plans to leverage the best elements of RISC-V to create a unified and commercialised proposition. The backing from leading semiconductor companies underscores Quintauris’s potential to be a sustainable and long-term player in the market.
