This article explores how RISC-V, combined with open-source collaboration and standards, is enabling innovation and purpose-built technologies among software engineers, system architects, CTOs, and board designers. It also touches on the possible impact that RISC-V and open source trends could have on the future of data-centric application experiences.

In part 12 of Resolving the Signal, we look at a power-supply noise design example to discuss which supplies are most critical when trying to increase a system's PSR. From that example, we offer best practices to maintain low power-supply noise and debugging tips for a system's overall noise performance.
