Arm, Alphawave Semi developing high-performance chiplet

Monday, June 10, 2024

Alphawave Semi has collaborated with Arm on the development of an advanced compute chiplet built on Arm Neoverse Compute Subsystems (CSS).

Intended for artificial intelligence/machine learning (AI/ML), high-performance compute (HPC), data centre and 5G/6G networking infrastructure applications, the development follows last year’s announcement that Alphawave Semi had joined Arm Total Design, an ecosystem building custom silicon solutions based on Arm Neoverse CSS.

Alphawave Semi’s chiplet-based custom silicon design platform includes IO extension chiplets, memory chiplets, and compute chiplets, as well as Alphawave Semi’s ultra-high-speed connectivity IP and advanced packaging capabilities.

This lineup features an Arm Neoverse N3 CPU core cluster and the Arm Coherent Mesh Network (CMN) ensures efficient, scalable performance.

Available on industry-leading process nodes, the technology will allow customers to accelerate development of a new generation of custom system-on-chip (SoC) technologies. These advanced SoCs support the rapid deployment of high-performance digital infrastructure, enabling the creation of custom silicon solutions tailored to specific needs.

In collaboration with Arm, Alphawave Semi enhances this setup with their advanced packaging techniques and a leading-edge portfolio of connectivity technologies, including PCIe Gen 6.0 and 7.0, Universal Chiplet Express (UCIe), 112/224G Ethernet and HBM subsystems.

This strategic integration ensures that the Arm-based compute chiplet are able to deliver robust performance and flexibility, catering to next-generation HPC, data centre, AI/ML, and 5G/6G infrastructure needs while accelerating time-to-market for customers.

“Our Arm-based compute chiplet is a critical component in Alphawave Semi’s custom silicon platform and a demonstration of both our IP, SoC and packaging capabilities and our successful strategic partnership with Arm,” said Mohit Gupta, Senior VP & GM, Custom Silicon & IP. Alphawave Semi. “Bringing together the Arm Neoverse CSS platform with Alphawave Semi’s advanced and proven IP drives innovation across the chiplet ecosystem and simplifies the development of critical custom silicon for AI, HPC and other demanding digital infrastructure applications.”

“Arm Total Design is fostering a rapidly growing ecosystem around custom silicon and enabling chiplet innovations to take on increasingly complex computing requirements,” said Eddie Ramirez, vice president of go-to-market, Infrastructure Line of Business, Arm. “Alphawave Semi’s new advanced compute chiplet is a fantastic example of how industry-leading companies are leveraging the performance-optimisation and power efficiency benefits of Neoverse CSS to get to market faster and power the next-generation AI and HPC workloads.”
