Moortec’s 7nm In-Chip Monitoring Subsystem IP chosen by Esperanto Technologies to Optimise Performance and Reliability in its High-Performance AI Chip

Plymouth, UK, 12th November 2018 -- Moortec Semiconductor Ltd, providers of complete In-Chip PVT Monitoring Subsystems announced today that Esperanto Technologies have selected their complete 7nm Embedded In-Chip Monitoring Subsystem IP for Process, Voltage and Temperature Sensing to optimise performance and increase reliability for their AI Supercomputer-on-a-Chip. Esperanto develops high-performance, energy-efficient computing solutions for Artificial Intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) applications based on the open standard RISC-V ISA (Instruction Set Architecture.)

As a founding member of the RISC-V Foundation, Esperanto believes in open instruction sets, and that RISC-V has become a compelling choice for the most demanding applications. Many decades of processor design and architecture experience among our founding team members indicate that the machine learning era requires a new clean-sheet solution without the baggage of existing legacy architectures. With a simple, elegant instruction set architecture, RISC-V has inherent performance and energy efficiency advantages, helping Esperanto drive the future of innovation.

Esperanto technology highlights include:

• Energy Efficiency: Delivering unmatched energy efficiency, with unprecedented performance per watt.

• High Performance: Featuring the ultimate in performance with architectures based on ET-Maxion™ and ET-Minion™ cores.

• Innovation: Encouraging developer innovation in artificial intelligence, via flexible RISC-V open instruction set architecture designs.

Moortec’s In-Chip Monitoring Subsystem solution has been developed for 7nm FinFET technology and supports the semiconductor design community’s demands for increased device reliability and enhanced performance optimisation. By detecting process variability for each chip manufactured and monitoring the dynamic changes to temperature and voltage supply conditions, the IP can be used to enable continuous Dynamic Frequency and Voltage Scaling (DVFS) and Adaptive Voltage Scaling (AVS) optimisation schemes. The subsystem delivery also includes a sophisticated PVT Controller with standard interfacing, supporting multiple monitor instances, statistics gathering, production test access support as well as other compelling features.

Dave Ditzel, President and CEO of Esperanto, commented, “For high-performance AI / ML semiconductors such as Esperanto’s, performance optimisation and reliability is essential. Moortec’s in-chip sensing solutions support such demands, and we value their engineering talent.” Moortec CEO Stephen Crosher said, “We are very excited to be able to support companies like Esperanto Technologies, who like Moortec are operating at the cutting edge of AI and Machine Learning chip design. Esperanto are blazing a trail in this rapidly expanding market, taking power, performance and scalability of RISC-V cores to the next level. We are very pleased that Esperanto have utilised our highly accurate, highly featured sensors within our PVT Subsystem to ensure optimal performance and reliability in this highly advanced design.”
