Arteris Upgrades NoC for AI [Brief Item] Whereas human intelligence lives in neurons and synapses, artificial intelligence resides in transistors and wires.
Arteris IP helps engineers design the wires. At the recent Linley Fall Processor Conference, the company announced several upgrades for its licensable network-on-a-chip NoC technology, including some AI features. Although the upgrades are useful for designing the interconnects on any chip, some features are particularly useful for processing deep neural networks DNNs.
For example, a new intelligent multicast feature enables a source such as a CPU to simultaneously broadcast the same data to multiple destinations such as memory-mapped coprocessors.
In a multicore AI chip, it can distribute DNN-training weights and image-map updates to multiple cores at different memory addresses. Your teenagers are safely home, but do you know where your cows are? Tracking farm animals is only one application for a low-power location device that employs a global navigation satellite system GNSS.
Others include cargo logistics, smart-city infrastructure, remote patient monitors, and any mobile IoT client. But conventional GNSS positioning may use too much energy for a small battery-powered tracking device.
It's licensable intellectual property IP for chip designers that's based on previous Ensigma designs for Wi-Fi and Bluetooth.
At the recent Linley Fall Processor Conference, the company announced three new variants that omit some features to reduce cost and power. The LSA follows a new company strategy. Although NXP has always offered industrial processors and microcontrollers, networking was the main target for the high-performance QorIQ line.
More recently, the convergence of wired and wireless communications with industrial automation is opening new opportunities while the company's sales decline in the network-infrastructure market. The new trend is called "Industrial IoT" or "Industry 4. Comparison of three embedded processors for industrial applications: This model accesses DRAM through external buffer chips, which provide industry-leading memory bandwidth and capacity for enterprise servers that handle large workloads.
They provide less bandwidth but are better suited to lower-cost systems such as web servers that handle threads with modest memory requirements. By offering Power9 products with both types of memory subsystems, IBM is targeting a wide range of servers with the same basic chip design.
Power9 offers the best per-core performance of any server processor. SPECint benchmark comparison. Comparison of high-end server processors: At the recent Xilinx Developer Forum, the company also replaced the Everest code-name with the official brand: Versal, a portmanteau of "versatile" and "universal.
Although we doubt other vendors will adopt that name, we agree these devices are full-fledged SoCs containing programmable logic, not just FPGAs with some SoC elements. Some Versal products will include the new software-programmable accelerators described at Hot Chips in August.

Enter a word (or two) above and you'll get back a bunch of portmanteaux created by jamming together words that are conceptually related to your inputs..
For example, enter "giraffe" and you'll get . Dagmar Berne was the first woman to enrol in medicine in Australia, at the University of Sydney in , and faced considerable prejudice.
