OpenFive Joins Universal Chiplet Interconnect Express (UCIe) Consortium

Universal Chiplet Interconnect Express (UCIe) is an open specification that defines the interconnect between chiplets within a package. The objective is to enable an open chiplet ecosystem. Although the initial specification for UCIe was developed by Intel, a consortium was announced in March with Intel, AMD, Arm, Google, Meta, Microsoft, ASE Group, Qualcomm, Samsung and […]

IP Subsystems and Chiplets for Edge and AI Accelerators

From a business viewpoint we often read in the technical press about the virtues of applying AI, and in the early days most of the AI model building was done in the cloud, because of the high computation requirements, yet there’s a developing trend now to use AI accelerators at the Edge. The other mega-trend […]

OpenFive’s Customizable Silicon-Focused Solutions

Today, I am excited to announce the launch of OpenFive, a self-contained and autonomous custom silicon business unit of SiFive, Inc. OpenFive is solution-centric and uniquely positioned to design processor agnostic SoCs and deliver high-quality silicon. The demand for domain-specific silicon and workload-focused architecture is driven by several key factors. General purpose processors used to […]

Webinar: Build Your Next HBM2/2E Chip with SiFive

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 what’s been called […]

Chip-to-Chip Communication for Enterprise and Cloud

I recently had the opportunity to attend a SemiWiki webinar entitled “Chip-to-Chip Communication for Enterprise and Cloud”.  The webinar was presented by SiFive and explored chip-to-chip communication strategies for a variety of applications.  In the first part of the webinar, Ketan Mehta, director of SoC IP product marketing at SiFive explored the uses of the Interlaken […]
