A Fast And Unified Toolchain For Rapid Design Space Exploration Of Chiplet Architectures


A technical paper titled “RapidChiplet: A Toolchain for Rapid Design Space Exploration of Chiplet Architectures” was published by researchers at ETH Zurich and University of Bologna.


“Chiplet architectures are a promising paradigm to overcome the scaling challenges of monolithic chips. Chiplets offer heterogeneity, modularity, and cost-effectiveness. The design space of chiplet architectures is huge as there are many degrees of freedom such as the number, size and placement of chiplets, the topology of the inter-chiplet interconnect and many more. Existing tools for cost and performance prediction are often too slow to explore this design space. We present RapidChiplet, a fast, open-source toolchain to predict latency and throughput of the inter-chiplet interconnect, as well as a chip’s manufacturing cost and thermal stability.”
