YorChip unveils first Chiplet for Edge AI applications

1 min read

YorChip has unveiled its first Chiplet for Edge AI applications with IP licensed from Semidynamics, the RISC-V IP specialists.

The Semidynamics High-Performance High-Bandwidth Quad Core IP with 4 Atrevido 423 with V8 SMD VPUs and T16 SMD Tensor Units can provide 10 Int8-TOPS per chiplet. Edge AI requires high performance, high bandwidth, and low cost. The target technology is 12nm with a target die size sub 25mm2 that can deliver both a scalable performance and lower costs.

Chiplets represent a multi-billion-dollar market potential, according to research from Transparency Market Research, and the market is expected to worth over $47bn by 2031, representing one of the fastest growing segments of the semiconductor industry at more than 40% CAGR from 2021 to 2031.

This growth is expected to be enabled by the considerable cost reduction and improved yields Chiplets will enable as compared to traditional system-on-chip (SoC) designs.

YorChips’ CEO and founder, Kash Johal, said, “We chose to work with the Semidynamics team due to their long-term focus on fully customisable 64-bit RISC-V processor IP and expertise to rapidly support AI/ML workloads. Coupled with our UCIe PHY and low latency switching fabric customers can cluster up to 16 Compute Chiplets to support 100 Int-8 TOPS.”

Semidynamics’ CEO and founder, Roger Espasa, said, “Targeted at automotive, robotic, drone and other high-performance edge AI markets, our RISC-V Quad Core IP paired with our Vector Processor Unit and Tensor Processor Unit, ensures greater efficiency in big data applications and high-bandwidth memory systems. We are excited to be partnering with YorChip as it will give us the opportunity to showcase our latest IP in a Chiplet application allowing customers to try and discover our technology.”
