NetSpeed and Esperanto partner to power SoCs for artificial intelligence
NetSpeed Systems and Esperanto Technologies has announced that Esperanto has licensed NetSpeed’s IP and intelligent design environment for its Supercomputer-on-a-Chip for Artificial Intelligence (AI) applications. Esperanto’s 7nm chip will integrate thousands of RISC-V compatible processors each with vector/tensor accelerators and all connected with NetSpeed’s NoC IP.
AI applications demand new architectures to meet the need for unprecedented performance, sophisticated functionality and ultra-low power. Interconnect technology is a critical component of these architectures.
Esperanto’s high-performance ET-Maxion cores are designed to deliver the highest single thread RISC-V performance. Its ET-Minion™ cores are designed for energy efficiency and high floating point throughput, including vector/tensor acceleration. With thousands of energy efficient 64-bit RISC-V cores on one chip, Esperanto will deliver industry-leading TeraFlops/Watt of scalable computing performance for artificial intelligence, machine learning and other applications.
