A 2021 Summary of OpenFive

Building a better mousetrap plays a key role in achieving market success in any industry. Of course, building one requires differentiating the product from the others already in the market. A differentiated product can even lead to creating demand for new products in adjacent markets. All of this is great but how do you implement […]

Interface Agnostic Universal D2D Controller for HPC and Chiplets (BoW): Part 2

Overview In our previous blog (Part 1) we discussed various interface choices for die-to-die connections. We reviewed how parallel wires are beneficial for chiplet architecture in terms of latency, throughput, and power. Following the selection of a parallel wire interface, two main technologies for parallel interfaces have emerged the past few months, based on packaging […]

RISC-V Chiplets, Disaggregated Die, and Tiles

Chris Jones, Vice President, Products—September 16, 2021 Scalable High-Performance Computing SoC Design with RISC-V Whether you refer to the design concept as a disaggregated die, tiles, chiplets, or good ol’ multi-chip modules, a growing trend among SoC designers is making the interposer act like a ‘mainboard’ to host multiple chips. Together, these chips form a […]

Enabling Edge AI Vision with RISC-V and a Silicon Platform

By Tom Simon, the Moderator at SemiWiki on 03-15-2021. 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 […]

Protocol and Interface Agnostic Universal D2D Controller for HPC and Chiplets

Overview Demand for die-to-die and chip-to-chip interfaces has been growing steadily in the past few years due to new applications in cloud/data centers, AI (training and edge applications), and High-Performance Computing (HPC). The demand is driven by the requirements of high throughput, low latency and low power in these applications. Advances in packaging technology are further helping the adoption of heterogeneous systems with […]

WEBINAR: Differentiated Edge AI with OpenFive and CEVA

OpenFive is hosting a webinar with CEVA on November 12th to talk about how OpenFive’s vision platform, leveraging CEVA vision and AI solutions. Which can get you to a differentiated solution for your product with as much or as little silicon participation on your part as you want. I talked briefly to Jeff VanWashenova (CEVA […]
