Judging by the list of open vacancies on the Apple website, the company is now considering the possibility of creating its own chip based on the open RISC-V architecture. The latter can become an alternative to ARM solutions.
According to reports, Apple recently started looking for an engineer who is familiar with the RISC-V architecture. The main feature of the latter is the possibility of free use, including for commercial purposes. Simply put, the transition to the RISC-V architecture will allow Apple not to pay royalties to ARM.
It is worth noting that the RISC-V architecture did not appear yesterday. On its basis, quite technological solutions are created. In particular, chips based on the RISC-V architecture are planned to be used in data processing centers, as well as mobile and hybrid devices.
