The "Advanced Configuration and Power Interface" (ACPI) is the major platform requirement to get server OEMs and multiple OS vendors supported on RISC-V. Due to this and few other requirements, the RISC-V platform specification will mandate ACPI as the hardware discovery mechanism for server extension. This talk will focus on how ACPI can be enabled for RISC-V, what updates are required in the ACPI specification for RISC-V, Proof of Concept (POC) of the basic ACPI enablement in RISC-V Linux, issues faced during POC, and pending items.
