RISC-V Processor for Most Demanding AR Applications

Codasip has announced that SiliconArts has adopted application-specific Codasip 7-series RISC-V processors with Codasip Studio customization tools.

codashipSiliconArts is a leader in innovations for high-end graphics enabling immersive experiences with its photo-realistic ray tracing graphics rendering.

The combination of Codasip RISC-V processor IP and SiliconArts ray tracing GPUs will empower the next generation of the most demanding augmented reality applications.

SiliconArts ray tracing solution will incorporate Codasip’s RISC-V processor core IP. Codasip Studio tools will enable customers to achieve high levels of optimization for their graphics applications. Full flexibility for the SiliconArts partnership is enabled by full access to Codasip’s architecture licenses.

SiliconArts advanced MIMD GPU for ray tracing provides dramatic power savings over conventional SIMD-based GPU designs, enabling advanced photo-realistic rendering algorithms in lower-power solutions. Currently, photo-realistic rendering is limited to PCs and other power-hungry form factors employing traditional GPU ray tracing solutions.

Customization can seem challenging but with processor design automation solutions from Codasip, delivered via Codasip Studio, RISC-V processor cores can be quickly, easily and cost-effectively tuned to the specific needs of the application. Codasip Studio provides the tools to enable full access and assist in the optimization and customization process. The result is a finely tuned application-specific processor, compatible with an industry standard (RISC-V), yet highly optimized and differentiated, in ways that rigid, proprietary ISAs simply cannot deliver. Unlike other “full” license agreements to access processor architectures, Codasip licenses do not restrict what customers can do with its cores.

Codasip and SiliconArts are also collaborating to combine their advanced IP portfolios to enable integrated CPU/GPU designs as well as provide customization and optimization services for their mutual customers. This collaboration will develop advanced RISC-V GPU solutions for the emerging AR/VR market.
