Arteris Upgrades NoC for AI [Brief Item] Whereas human intelligence lives in neurons and synapses, artificial intelligence resides in transistors and wires. Arteris IP helps engineers design the wires. At the recent Linley Fall Processor Conference, the company announced several upgrades for its licensable network-on-a-chip NoC technology, including some AI features.
Although the upgrades are useful for designing the interconnects on any chip, some features are particularly useful for processing deep neural networks DNNs. For example, a new intelligent multicast feature enables a source such as a CPU to simultaneously broadcast the same data to multiple destinations such as memory-mapped coprocessors.
In a multicore AI chip, it can distribute DNN-training weights and image-map updates to multiple cores at different memory addresses. Your teenagers are safely home, but do you know where your cows are? Tracking farm animals is only one application for a low-power location device that employs a global navigation satellite system GNSS.
Others include cargo logistics, smart-city infrastructure, remote patient monitors, and any mobile IoT client. But conventional GNSS positioning may use too much energy for a small battery-powered tracking device. It's licensable intellectual property IP for chip designers that's based on previous Ensigma designs for Wi-Fi and Bluetooth.
At the recent Linley Fall Processor Conference, the company announced three new variants that omit some features to reduce cost and power. The LSA follows a new company strategy. Although NXP has always offered industrial processors and microcontrollers, networking was the main target for the high-performance QorIQ line.
More recently, the convergence of wired and wireless communications with industrial automation is opening new opportunities while the company's sales decline in the network-infrastructure market. The new trend is called "Industrial IoT" or "Industry 4. Comparison of three embedded processors for industrial applications: This model accesses DRAM through external buffer chips, which provide industry-leading memory bandwidth and capacity for enterprise servers that handle large workloads.
They provide less bandwidth but are better suited to lower-cost systems such as web servers that handle threads with modest memory requirements.
By offering Power9 products with both types of memory subsystems, IBM is targeting a wide range of servers with the same basic chip design.
Power9 offers the best per-core performance of any server processor. SPECint benchmark comparison. Comparison of high-end server processors: At the recent Xilinx Developer Forum, the company also replaced the Everest code-name with the official brand: Versal, a portmanteau of "versatile" and "universal.
Although we doubt other vendors will adopt that name, we agree these devices are full-fledged SoCs containing programmable logic, not just FPGAs with some SoC elements. Some Versal products will include the new software-programmable accelerators described at Hot Chips in August. Xilinx Versal SoC block diagram.
Although Fujitsu's product roadmap still shows a 7nm SPARC design in progress, the company's next-generation supercomputer switches to a custom bit Arm processor built in the same technology.
This powerful core chip will appear in the mammoth Post-K supercomputer scheduled to debut in The company has initial silicon samples of the chip and demonstrated a single-rack Post-K prototype at a supercomputer conference earlier this year.
The company estimates Post-K will be about x faster than its predecessor, which contains 88, processors. Fujitsu A64FX block diagram. Comparison of Fujitsu supercomputer processors: They upend the traditional orientation of FPGAs by surrounding the programmable gates with more of everything: At the recent Hot Chips conference, Xilinx focused on one new aspect: Xilinx Everest conceptual block diagram.Automotive industry - The modern industry: The modern automotive industry is huge.
In the United States it is the largest single manufacturing enterprise in terms of total value of products, value added by manufacture, and number of wage earners employed.
One of every six American businesses is dependent on the manufacture, distribution, servicing, or use of motor vehicles; sales and receipts. Significant Energy E vents in Earth's and Life's History as of Energy Event. Timeframe. Significance. Nuclear fusion begins in the Sun.
billion years ago (“bya”) Provides the power for all of Earth's geophysical, geochemical, and ecological systems, with . 2. The fundamentals of additive manufacturing. The fundamental attributes of Additive Manufacturing technologies are presented in this section.
Additional information on AM processes can be found in prior overviews,,,.AM processes fabricate parts by creating successive cross-sectional layers of an object.
Here we take a much closer look at some current automation concepts and successes that increasingly incorporate A.I.-enabled robotics. Industrial robots and other automation machines are discussed along with some brief historical background for perspective. A revolution is going on in robotics, in which a new army of biologically inspired robots is emerging from laboratories throughout the world.
As these robots learn to walk, crawl, and fly, they are advancing both robotics and scientists' understanding of how animals move. The goal is to create robots that can go where humans either can't go or where it's not safe to send them, such as the.
The Future of Jobs and Jobs Training. As robots, automation and artificial intelligence perform more tasks and there is massive disruption of jobs, experts say a wider array of education and skills-building programs will be created to meet new demands.
