Overview

The first interconnect solution specifically for artificial Intelligence applications
Orion AI delivers extreme performance and ultimate efficiency for next-gen AI SoCs
An Interconnect Specifically for AI

Orion AI brings advanced features such as multicast and broadcast to improve performance and efficiency in artificial intelligence applications. Designed to provide extreme performance–terabits of on-chip bandwidth–its underlying architecture that can support thousands of compute engines. Orion AI provides super-wide data paths with interfaces of up to 1024 bits, higher for internal structures, and can support long bursts of up to 4K Bytes.


Why Orion AI

AI is Driving a Metamorphosis in Computing
Artificial Intelligence (AI) is making its way into many applications including vision, speech, forecasting, robotics and diagnostics. These emerging applications require a whole new level of processing capability and are driving sweeping changes in computational architectures and a dramatic shift in SOC design. New requirements include:

  • Unique Workloads: massive matrix multiplication is needed for both training and inference phases.
  • Complex Architecture: large numbers of cores, massive parallelism, peer-to-peer traffic are specialized requirements for AI SoC
  • Need for Speed: AI applications require extremely high bandwidth and this increases with each new generation.

Supercharge SoC Designs for Extreme Performance and Ultimate Efficiency

Experience the most powerful and advanced SoC development platform available. Orion AI was designed to provide extreme performance–terabits of on-chip bandwidth. It provides a scalable and reusable SoC interconnect platform that automates IP integration, eliminates deadlocks and improves quality of results.

  • Performance : The underlying architecture that can support thousands of compute engines. It provides super-wide data paths with interfaces of up to 1024 bits, higher for internal structures, and can support long bursts of up to 4K Bytes.
  • Efficiency : First and only interconnect to provide configurable and programmable multicast and broadcast support. Posted write support reduces unnecessary ack messages and increasing available bandwidth. The architecture optimized for peer-to-peer traffic to support the any-to-any communication AI applications need.
  • AI Inside : Orion AI is powered by NetSpeed's Turing machine learning engine which uses supervised learning to explore and optimize SoC design and architecture. This is an AI-inside approach that is like having a guru architect on call to provide design advice.
