SANTA Clara, Calif. — Intel, SiFive, Marvell, Mellanox, and Achronix all announced important developments at the Linley Processor Conference. Most of the innovations were either about artificial intelligence processors or about supporting AI workloads in data centers.
Silicon Valley has more than its share of technical conferences, more so than you could possibly attend in the year. And even the conferences you do attend have multiple tracks, making it difficult to catch all the presentations. With that said, there are certain conferences that stand out every year for new chip announcements, including Hot Chips, the newly formed AI Hardware Summit, and the Linley Processor Conferences. The latter two conferences have sponsors present, so the content can vary, but The Linley Group is good at keeping the content technical and relevant.
