The only publicly available information on the IP block is:

https://github.com/T-head-Semi/openc906/blob/main/doc/%E7%8E%84%E9%93%81C906%E7%94%A8%E6%88%B7%E6%89%8B%E5%86%8C.pdf

Page 3 has a version number for the whole document. Chapter 9 does not 
have any version number for the CLINT. So should we simply call the 
block "thead,clint" without any version number?

@Guo: do you have more information accessible?

Best regards

Heinrich
