MILPITAS, Calif., Oct. 01, 2018 -- Open-Silicon, a system-optimized ASIC solution provider and long-standing member of TSMC’s Value Chain Aggregator (VCA) and Design Center Alliance (DCA) programs, will present on custom SoC platform solutions for AI applications at the TSMC Open Innovation Platform® (OIP) Ecosystem Forum on October 3 in Santa Clara, CA. The company will also demonstrate its comprehensive High Bandwidth Memory (HBM2) IP subsystem solution for 2.5D ASICs in TSMC’s FinFET and CoWoS® technologies.
Custom SoC Platform with IP Subsystems Optimized for FinFET Technologies Enabling AI Applications
Advances in computing power and deep learning have enabled AI to reach a tipping point toward major disruption and rapid advancement. However, these applications require much higher memory bandwidth. System ASIC platforms enable AI applications through training in deep learning and high speed inter-node connectivity, by deploying high speed SerDes, a deep neural network DSP engine, and a high speed high bandwidth memory interface with High Bandwidth Memory (HBM) within a 2.5D system-in-package (SiP).
Open-Silicon’s implementation of a silicon-proven system ASIC platform in TSMC’s FinFET and CoWoS® technologies was initially silicon proven in 16FF+ at 2Gbps data rate, achieving bandwidths up to 256GBps. Keeping up with the ecosystem, the platform quickly evolved to support 2.4Gbps data rate, achieving bandwidths up to >300GBps in 16FFC. Open-Silicon’s next generation platform in 7FF is based on a PPA-optimized HBM2 IP subsystem supporting 3.2Gbps and beyond data rates, achieving bandwidths up to >400GBps.
This presentation will discuss the implementation challenges, solutions and methodologies available to minimize risk, optimize performance, and improve 2.5D SiP manufacturing and yield through best-in-class custom silicon solutions.
