The world's first RISC-V laptop ROMA equipped with openKylin system is officially released

The 10th Annual Open Source Operating System Technical Conference (OS2ATC) was recently held in Beijing, where the world's first RISC-V development laptop, ROMA, was officially released. The laptop comes equipped with the openKylin operating system by default, which is a desktop operating system root community led by Kylin Software. ROMA is the first laptop that is deeply digitally developed and debugged by Jianshi Technology, allowing users to experience native RISC-V development and the RISC-V software ecosystem.

ROMA Notebook: Features and Specifications

ROMA Notebook comes in 12nm (Professional)/28nm (Standard) SoM package, and a quad-core RISC-V chip with GPU, NPU, and function accelerator. The laptop has an upgradeable SoC motherboard, and it will use a quad-core RISC-V processor, Arm SC300 security processing unit, GPU/NPU accelerator for video work, support 16GB of LPDDR4 or LPDDR4X memory, and 256GB of storage. The machine will support most RISC-V distributions, and has RISC-V keys, which may be shortcut keys or custom keys for the development environment.

RISC-V SoM chip products using the same ROMA model will be available in succession from 2023 to 2024, providing RISC-V developers and enthusiasts with a more comprehensive product development experience.

Software Ecology

Jianshi Technology has developed a high-performance compiler for RISC-V, which has been adapted to ROMA notebooks and is compatible with mainstream compilers such as Clang and LLVM. Jianshi Technology's RISC-V high-performance compiler is specially optimized for the Pingtou Gexuantie C910 open source IP core and supports the seL4 microkernel. It is currently the RISC-V compiler with higher performance on the market. The compiler is a key factor for the upper layer application software to run on the ROMA notebook.

OpenKylin is committed to building the collaborative development of the operating system and RISC-V architecture software and hardware ecology. OpenKylin version 0.95 was released in January 2013, which is equipped with a new generation of UKUI 4.0 desktop environment by default. The operating system deeply optimizes the tablet mode, upgrades the system interconnection function, and supports device projection, remote control, fast mutual transmission. Newly unlocked ARM architecture, officially adapted to Raspberry Pi and Cool Pi development boards, and supports the development mode of Raspberry Pi's software and hardware integration. At the same time, the adaptation of the RISC-V architecture Pingtou Yingying 1520 development board has been completed.
