New software maps high-level AI workloads to eSilicon’s neuASIC modular AI ASIC IP platform
August 15, 2019 -- San Jose, Calif. -- eSilicon, an independent provider of FinFET-class ASIC design, market-specific IP platforms and advanced 2.5D packaging solutions, will exhibit at Hot Chips 31.

Introducing AI Accelerator Software
eSilicon’s 7nm FinFET neuASIC™ AI IP platform is a library of AI-specific tiles that can be configured to support an AI algorithm. eSilicon’s new AI Accelerator maps high-level AI workloads to the neuASIC platform and estimates PPA (power, performance, area) for the algorithm in the resultant silicon implementation.
neuASIC IP plus the AI Accelerator software allow design exploration of candidate architectures to ensure the design will be within the target specifications. This approach supports changes to the algorithm or the package.
eSilicon will be demonstrating AI Accelerator on Monday and Tuesday at its sponsor table.
AI Accelerator is available in IP Navigator, eSilicon’s IP exploration and evaluation tool, at no charge. A free eSilicon STAR account is required to access Navigator, which may be requested here.
Update on Chiplets
The idea of chiplets makes sense in terms of yield, cost and risk, but they haven’t really caught on. Is there a chiplet business model that works?
