Codasip delivers customized RISC-V processing to SiliconArts ray-tracing GPUs

With Codasip 7-series core IP and Codasip Studio instruments

Munich, Germany; Seoul, South Korea – 2 November 2022 – Codasip, the chief in customizable RISC-V processor IP, at this time introduced that SiliconArts has adopted application-specific Codasip 7-series RISC-V processors with Codasip Studio customization instruments. SiliconArts is a frontrunner in improvements for high-end graphics enabling immersive experiences with its photo-realistic ray tracing graphics rendering. The mixture of Codasip RISC-V processor IP and SiliconArts ray tracing GPUs will empower the following technology of probably the most demanding augmented actuality purposes.

SiliconArts ray tracing resolution will incorporate Codasip’s RISC-V processor core IP. Codasip Studio instruments will allow prospects to attain excessive ranges of optimization for his or her graphics purposes. Full flexibility for the SiliconArts partnership is enabled by full entry to Codasip’s structure licenses.

SiliconArts superior MIMD GPU for ray tracing offers dramatic energy financial savings over typical SIMD-based GPU designs, enabling superior photo-realistic rendering algorithms in lower-power options. At present, photo-realistic rendering is proscribed to PCs and different power-hungry type components using conventional GPU ray tracing options.

Customization can appear difficult however with processor design automation options from Codasip, delivered through Codasip Studio, RISC-V processor cores may be rapidly, simply and cost-effectively tuned to the precise wants of the applying. Codasip Studio offers the instruments to allow full entry and help within the optimization and customization course of. The result’s a finely tuned application-specific processor, appropriate with an business commonplace (RISC-V), but extremely optimized and differentiated, in ways in which inflexible, proprietary ISAs merely can not ship. In contrast to different “full” license agreements to entry processor architectures, Codasip licenses don’t limit what prospects can do with its cores.

Codasip and SiliconArts are additionally collaborating to mix their superior IP portfolios to allow built-in CPU/GPU designs in addition to present customization and optimization companies for his or her mutual prospects. This collaboration will develop superior RISC-V GPU options for the rising AR/VR market.

Ron Black, CEO, Codasip, commented, “It’s turning into extraordinarily tough to make efficiency good points from scaling semiconductors to smaller nodes. RISC-V mixed with the customization capabilities of Codasip Studio allow our prospects to make vital efficiency good points.” Black continued, “SiliconArts is delivering immersive photorealism in augmented actuality purposes utilizing highly effective ray-tracing GPUs. The applying of Codasip RISC-V IP is testomony to the potential of our know-how.”

Dr Hyungmin Yoon, CEO of SiliconArts, added, “SiliconArts strives to be on the forefront of graphics innovation and the adoption of 3D bodily rendering. Using typical processor options delivers sub-par efficiency. We want our designers’ and our prospects’ imaginations to be unleashed which suggests we’d like one thing bespoke for our very demanding ray tracing purposes. In working with Codasip, we’ve got full entry to the IP, to the customization suite of Studio instruments. SiliconArts also can present companies to different chip designs with our information of the Codasip system instruments primarily based on their RISC-V IP, which is extremely well-tested and already extensively utilized in billions of different units.”
