The end of Moore’s Law will increase the use of domain-specific accelerators to meet power-performance requirements in cloud infrastructure, network infrastructure and IoT/wireless edge applications. However, the high cost and complexity of accelerator development is a major factor restraining growth. To meet current and future growth demands, network providers need a more efficient and open approach to satisfy the needs of a wide range of data center applications.
Seven leading companies (Achronix, GlobalFoundries, Kandou, Netronome, NXP, Sarcina and SiFive) have joined forces to form the Open Domain-Specific Accelerator (ODSA) Workgroup. The primary goal of the ODSA Workgroup is to develop an open architecture and related specifications that will enable integration of multi-vendor chiplets to build best-of-breed silicon devices and reduce development and manufacturing costs. On this Light Reading webinar we will address the following:
- How can cloud and network providers benefit from open domain-specific accelerators?
- What best-of-breed components such as processors, accelerators, memory and I/O will be addressed in the architecture? Would there be any limitations?
- What chiplet-based solutions can be supported today?
- What are the technical and business challenges related to chiplets?
- How can companies join and contribute to the ODSA workgroup?
