Membership will drive VeriSilicon’sindustrialization of chiplet-based projects and support aim of becominga leading provider of commercialized chiplets globally
Shanghai, China - April 4, 2022 - VeriSilicon (688521.SH), a leading Silicon Platform as a Service (SiPaaS®) company, today announced it has officially joined the Universal Chiplet Interconnect Express (UCIe) industry consortium. VeriSilicon is one of the first enterprises in mainland China to join the organizationand will work with other members on research and adoption of the UCIe 1.0 Specification and the nextgeneration of UCIe technology.VeriSilicon’s participation will support development of its chiplet-based technology and associated products.
The UCIe industry consortium was foundedlast monthby Advanced Semiconductor Engineering, Inc. (ASE), AMD, Arm, Google Cloud, Intel Corporation, Meta, Microsoft Corporation, Qualcomm Incorporated, Samsung, and Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company to promote the standardization of chiplet interface specifications. The consortium has already ratified the UCIe 1.0 Specification. UCIe is an open specification that defines the interconnect between chiplets within a package, enabling an open chiplet ecosystem and ubiquitous interconnect at the package level.
According to the latest IPnest statistics1 , VeriSilicon ranked 1st in mainland China and 7th worldwide among semiconductor IP suppliers, while also ranking 2nd in growth rate and rankingwithin the top-two among the top seven in IP category.Withsix categories of in-house processor IPs, which include Graphics Processor Unit (GPU) IP, Neural Network Processor (NPU) IP, Video Processor Unit (VPU) IP, Digital Signal Processor (DSP) IP, Image Signal Processor (ISP) IP and Display Processor IP, as well as leading chip design capabilities, VeriSilicon has been striving toadvancechiplet technology and industry in recent years.Under the concepts of “IP as a Chiplet” and “Chiplet as a Platform”, VeriSilicon has launched a high-end application processor platform based on chiplet architecture. To date, the 12nm SoC version has been taped out and verified, and the upgraded chiplet-based version is in progress.
“Tablets/laptops, autonomous driving and data centersstand out as the first areas where chiplets will be adopted,”said Dr. Wayne Dai, Chairman, President and CEO of VeriSilicon.“Tablets/laptops require more heterogeneous processor IPs with different functions, data centers need to integrate multiple general-purpose high-performance computing modules, andautomotive-gradechiplets can significantly improve the iterative efficiency of automotive chips and reduce the potential security risks associated with single chip failure, which are all ideal use cases for chiplets.VeriSilicon’s efforts in chiplet-based projects over the years have not only facilitated the industrialization of chiplets, but also elevated our semiconductor IP licensing services and one-stop custom silicon services to new heights.VeriSilicon will be likely tobe one of the world’s first companies to bring commercialized chiplet products to market.”
