Scalable, Shared-L1-Memory Manycore RISC-V System

A new technical paper titled "MemPool: A Scalable Manycore Architecture with a Low-Latency Shared L1 Memory" was published by researchers at ETH Zurich and University of Bologna. Abstract: "Shared L1 memory clusters are a common architectural pattern (e.g., in GPGPUs) for building efficient and flexible multi-processing-element (PE) engines. However, it is a common belief that these tightly... » read more

Better Optimization For Many-Core AI Chips

The rise of massively parallel computing has led to an explosion of silicon complexity, driven by the need to process data for artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) applications. This complexity is seen in designs like the Cerebras Wafer Scale Engine (figure 1), a tiled manycore, multiple wafer die with a transistor count into the trillions and nearly a million compute cores. ... » read more
