SPEED Computing Platforms
We are developing two revolutionnary digital platforms to bring your SoC to the ultimate level of energy efficiency:
- Panther: generic high-performance DSP platform with up to 64MAC/cycle (availibility Y21Q1)
- Raptor: dedicated Neural Network accelerator up to 128MAC/cycle (availibility Y21Q2)
PANTHER DSP platform
Panther is a highly configurable DSP cluster based on up to 16 processing elements and an ML/AI accelerator.
It is based on an innovative approach with 16 cache-less DSP cores interconnected by a low latency interconnect with up to 240Gb/s bandwidth.
The platform comes with an RTL configurator and a tool chain.
Panther can enable more than 7 GOPS computing performance and an efficiency of 120 GOPS/W (@2.2 GOPS) in 40 nm LP technology.
It can be combined with Chameleon MCU sub-system to target ultimate energy efficiency for your SoC.
Panther will be fully available Q1 2021.
RAPTOR Neural Network Accelerator platform
Raptor is a Programmable hardware accelerator specialized in NN inference and vision processing, which includes a host core, a DMA, and up to 128 processing elements.
Raptor enables more than 128 MAC/cycle computing performance with an efficiency of 2200 GOPS/W (@16 GOPS) in 28 nm FD-SOI technology.
It is fully compatible with our Spider power management platform for an optimized power distribution.
Raptor will be fully available Q2 2021.
