San Jose, Oct. 12, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Principal Engineer Thang Tran of Andes Technology Corporation (TWSE: 6533), a leading supplier of high efficiency, low-power 32/64-bit RISC-V processor cores and founding premier member of RISC-V International will present at the Linley Processor Conference on Wednesday October 21st at 9:30 AM. His talk will describe a vector processor with 9 functional units and integral scalar floating-point unit. Tran will describe how fourteen vector instructions can be concurrently executed. He will also explain how innovative design algorithms are used to issue 8 micro-ops per cycle and allow vector instructions to be chained, executed, and completed out-of-order without the use of any temporary registers.
“The AI processor market will expand…, hitting $68.5 billion by the mid-2020s, IHS Markit predicts. “AI is already propelling massive demand growth for microchips,” said Luca De Ambroggi, senior research director for AI at IHS Markit. “However, the technology also is changing the shape of the chip market, redefining traditional processor architectures and memory interfaces to suit new performance demands.”
“This new era belongs to the internet of things (IoT), machine learning (ML), and artificial intelligent (AI),” said Tran. “The flexible, extensible, and configurable RISC-V instruction set architecture is best for these applications and is experiencing rapid worldwide adoption. RISC-V provides both standard extension to the instruction set as well as custom instructions. One of the important extension is vector which is critical for ML and AI applications. Andes Technology is the first offer a RISC-V vector processor core that provides the performance being demanded by these emerging applications.”
“We are extremely pleased to be contributing to the Linley Processor Conference in 2020,” said Andes President Frankwell Lin. “The conference continues as the international venue for the next generation of commercial processors. Having our leading-edge RISC-V processor core described before the most astute and discerning worldwide audience reflects on the innovation our presenter Thang Tran and the Andes engineering team has achieved. We invite you to attend to hear first-hand of our breakthrough.”
