Cambricon Licenses NetSpeed Fabric IP for Its Next-Gen Artificial Intelligence Products

San Jose, California, June 12, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- NetSpeed Systems, Inc. today announced that Cambricon Technologies, a leader in China’s AI market, has licensed NetSpeed’s Interconnect IP for use in its next-generation system-on-chips (SoCs). Cambricon’s chips are designed specifically for artificial intelligence (AI) applications and are used in data center, security surveillance, and autonomous driving devices

New AI-enabled applications are demanding new SoC architectures and interconnect implementations are becoming far more important to design success.  AI applications tend to have many accelerator cores all bursting large blocks of data simultaneously, easily overwhelming traditional interconnect schemes. The SoCs used in AI applications demand unprecedented performance, sophisticated functionality and ultra-low power.

Cambricon needed an interconnect solution that could meet the performance requirements for its next-generation chip and new features that would enable them to achieve their frequency targets.  After careful analysis and evaluation of the available options, Cambricon chose NetSpeed’s physically-aware interconnect IP.

“Most NoCs incorporate concepts of packet switching, dynamic priority, virtual channels, and more to achieve better interconnect bandwidth and latency, said Mike Demler, senior analyst at The Linley Group. “However, automation of the architecture and design process using machine learning is a new frontier for interconnect technology being pioneered by NetSpeed.”

“NetSpeed is the unquestionable leader in providing a high performance interconnect solution for the AI market segment,” said Tianshi Chen, CEO of Cambricon. “The reason we choose NetSpeed is the scalability of the IP and the ability to configure sophisticated topologies for high performance required by AI applications with minimal effort. Hence, we are choosing NetSpeed’s IP with its advanced AI extensions for our next-gen SoC designs.”

"We are pleased to announce our collaboration with Cambricon, a leader and pioneer in designing SoCs targeted for the AI market," said Anush Mohandass, Vice president of marketing and business development at NetSpeed. "Cambricon’s usage of our Orion-AI IP is a reflection of the strength of our technology. It reinforces NetSpeed's leadership in the AI market, both for training and edge computing devices."
