April 19, 2021 — BSC researchers lead eProcessor, a project that will create a 100% European out-of-order (OoO) RISC-V core to produce new embedded High Performance Computing (HPC) products entirely based in Europe.

BSC will coordinate the eProcessor (European, extendable, energy-efficient, energetic, embedded, extensible, Processor Ecosystem) project contributing its experience on hardware design, FPGA emulation, benchmarking, and system simulation tools. More specifically, it will contribute to:

  • The design of an energy-efficient, high-performance OoO RISC-V core, which will be implemented as a single-core and dual-core ASICs with off-chip coherent link.
  • The design of a RISC-V vector accelerator for HPC workloads for the project’s case studies, exploring different implementations optimized for energy efficiency using a variety of mixed and low-precision data types.
  • Explore both traditional HPC workloads as well as emerging High Performance Data Analytics (HPDA) workloads such as Artificial Intelligence (AI) and bioinformatics applications
