Scaleable RISC-V module for distributed AI processing

The ARVSOM RISC-V system on module from Antmicro works with a Raspberry Pi carrier board for scaleable computing

eenewseurope.com, May. 03, 2021 – 

Antmicro in Sweden has launched a fully open source RISC-V system-on-module (SoM) that fits onto a carrier board to fit up to 18 nodes in a single 1U rack..

The ARVSOM is based around the StarFive 71x0 system on chip developed by SiFive that can run Linux.

The SoM will be compatible with Antmicro's server-oriented Scalenode platform, released earlier this month, that was originally designed as a baseboard for the Raspberry Pi 4 Compute Module. Used together, Scalenode and ARVSOM will enable building easily scalable and flexible infrastructures consisting of clusters of small RISC-V-based compute units, with as many as 18 Scalenode boards fitting in a 1U rack.

Antmicro has been developing industrial and edge AI systems using vendor-neutral and customizable solutions as well as actively developing and contributing to the RISC-V ecosystem, improving processes as part of RISC-V International and the CHIPS Alliance.

The StarFive 71x0 is also used in the BeagleV StarLight development platform which has just been shipped to beta users, including Antmicro, who will be verifying its robustness and reliability in real life use cases, while the development community focuses on further expanding the RISC-V software support.
