Report Addresses the Perils of Dark Silicon

July 21, 2016

Dark silicon refers to the processing potential that's lost when thermal constraints disallow full CPU utilization. The gap between transistor scaling and voltage scaling combined with tighter integration of components (multicore, SoCs) has power density ramifications that are of particular concern for embedded computing, but high-performance computing faces similar "dark power" challenges. Bringing attention to this issue and exploring common solutions was the goal of the Dagstuhl Seminar 16052, “Dark Silicon: From Embedded to HPC Systems.” Read more…

RISC-V Startup Aims to Democratize Custom Silicon

July 13, 2016

Momentum for open source hardware made a significant advance this week with the launch of startup SiFive and its open source chip platforms based on the RISC-V instruction set architecture. The founders of the fabless semiconductor company — Krste Asanovic, Andrew Waterman, and Yunsup Lee — invented the free and open RISC-V ISA at the University of California, Berkeley, six years ago. The progression of RISC-V and the launch of SiFive opens the door to a new way of chip building that skirts prohibitive licensing costs and lowers the barrier to entry... Read more…
