Description (last modified by Joel Sherrill)

Qemu includes simulation for the SiFive? HiFive? Unleashed reference board (https://www.sifive.com/boards/hifive-unleashed). This board is simulated by Qemu and support for this board would provide a RISC-V test platform with networking and SMP.

Note: Initial development is expected only on Qemu although this is a reasonable target for someone in the community to have.

This is a good target for QEMU and it looks like the renode.io emulator supports it as well.

The board has been discontinued and will not be produced anymore. A quick search did not turn up any units that are available for purchase. Should that be a factor in deciding to implement this BSP?

There is a follow on board called HiFive? Unmatched, but the website says that the first production run was sold out and they are now going to focus on a new board that has not been released yet:

I have been looking for RISC-V targets have a SMP CPU, Ethernet, and at least some hope of low cost and long term availability.
Right now, the VisionFive? 2 board and the Upcoming Pine64 Star64 boards are promising, but I don't know if there are emulated targets for these boards.
