AI Chipset Market

AI vision processing moving to the edge is an undeniable industry trend. OpenFive, the custom silicon business unit of SiFive, discusses this trend with compelling facts in their recent paper titled “Enabling AI Vision at the Edge.” AI vision is being deployed in many applications, such as autonomous vehicles, smart cities, … Read More


RISC-V SDKs, from IP Vendor or a Third Party?

RISC-V SDKs, from IP Vendor or a Third Party?

RISC V min

Like many of us, I’m a fan of open-source solutions. They provide common platforms for common product evolution, avoiding a lot of unnecessary wheel re-invention, over and over again. Linux, TensorFlow, Apache projects, etc., etc. More recently the theme moved into hardware with OpenCores and now the RISC-V ISA. All good stuff.… Read More

I have been watching the trend for quite some time now that many advanced FinFET designs today are actually 2.5D systems in package. All of these 2.5D silicon interposer-based designs have high-bandwidth memory (HBM) stacks on board.  Often there are multiple memory stacks in both 4-high and 8-high configurations. If you follow… Read More

Arm Reveals Custom Instructions, Mbed Partner Governance

Arm Reveals Custom Instructions, Mbed Partner Governance
by Bernard Murphy on 10-30-2019 at 6:00 am

Tipping the scale

At TechCon Arm announced two more advances against competitive threats, one arguably tactical and the other strategic, at least in this writer’s view.  The tactical move was to add support for custom instructions, the ability to collapse multiple instructions into a single instruction through customer-added logic which hooks… Read More
