SiFive, Credo and Open-Silicon Showcase End-to-End Solutions for HPC and Networking Applications at SC18 in Dallas

DALLAS, Nov. 12, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- SiFive, Credo and Open-Silicon will exhibit complete end-to-end solutions for HPC and networking applications at Supercomputing 2018 (SC18) in Dallas, TX. The co-demonstration illustrates the capabilities of SiFive’s highest performance RISC-V Core IP U7 Series, Open-Silicon’s HBM2 IP subsystem and Credo’s high performance, low power, mixed-signal 112Gbps PAM4 SerDes. Custom SoC solutions and critical IP cores, including Interlaken IP and Ethernet IP subsystems, will also be showcased.

The SiFive Core IP U7 Series is a high-performance RISC-V applications processor featuring a dual-issue superscalar core with domain-specific customizations required for embedding intelligence from the edge to the cloud. The U7 series microarchitecture optimizes performance and power enabling high throughput systems for diverse compute workloads and form-factors. Credo’s 112G SerDes, silicon proven in advanced 7nm FinFET node, enables rapid build-out of next-generation 100G, 400G and 800G Ethernet cloud networks, and delivers higher bandwidth, lower power and optimum lane count configurations. Open-Silicon’s HBM2 IP subsystem solution, in FinFET technologies, includes an HBM2 controller, PHY and interposer I/O. It provides the highest performance and flexibility for integrating HBM directly into next-generation custom SoC 2.5D SiP solutions.

“The SiFive Core IP U7 Series provides a compelling feature set that includes scalability, extensibility, 64-bit architectures, and a heterogenous coherent combination of real-time and application processors for next generation compute requiring embedded intelligence," said Jack Kang, VP of Product Marketing, SiFive.

“Credo’s silicon-proven 56G/112G SerDes IPs, combined with Open-Silicon’s SerDes Technology Center of Excellence, minimizes risk and time-to-market for developing next generation HPC and networking custom SoCs,” added Jeff Twombly, Vice President of Marketing and Business Development, Credo.

“This collaborative demonstration with SiFive and Credo is an excellent opportunity to unveil the power of a complete end-to-end solution for next generation custom SoC solutions for high-performance and bandwidth applications,” said Shafy Eltoukhy, SVP of Operations and GM, Open-Silicon.
