Netronome Announces Open Chiplet Architecture For Advanced SoC Designs

By October 31, 2018May 12th, 2021No Comments

Netronome, a leader in high-performance intelligent networking solutions, today announced an open architecture for domain-specific accelerators designed to significantly reduce the burgeoning cost of silicon development as demanded by modern data center server, edge computing and automotive applications. Decades of progress with general-purpose CPUs has slowed while performance requirements of workloads have catapulted, driving significant demand in domain-specific accelerators. With current approaches applied to developing and manufacturing domain-specific accelerator silicon, only the largest companies serving the highest volume markets can sustain the needed investment. Netronome is collaborating with six leading silicon companies, Achronix, GLOBALFOUNDRIES, Kandou, NXP, Sarcina and SiFive, to develop an open architecture and related specifications for developing chiplets that promise to reduce silicon development and manufacturing costs.
“A ‘one size fits all’ architecture approach to data center workloads will not deliver the required performance and efficiency,” said Dr. Naveed Sherwani, president and CEO at SiFive. “We are pleased to be a member of the ODSA Workgroup and look forward to SiFive’s leading RISC-V Core IP being available in chiplet form, potentially via our silicon capabilities, to enable customers to create open, heterogeneous, best-in-class accelerators at low cost.”
