Industry Transforming In Ways Previously Unimaginable

December 30th, 2021 - By Brian Bailey

As we look back over 2021, there have certainly been some surprises, but the industry continues to take everything in stride.


“How are our customers doing?” asks Kurt Shuler, vice president of marketing at Arteris IP. “How many new design starts are being done by our customers? How many new customers are we getting? Your heart says innovation should be slower or stalling, but when I look at the numbers, when I look at the financials — not just for us, but for all of our customers, all of our partners — semiconductors continue to be in a huge upswing even though we’re going through this. Maybe it is partially because of this. Maybe that’s fueling demand.”

Semiconductor Engineering: The High But Often Unnecessary Cost Of Coherence

The High But Often Unnecessary Cost Of Coherence

December 22nd, 2021 - By Brian Bailey

Cache coherency is expensive and provides little or negative benefit for some tasks. So why is it still used so frequently?


“Coherence is a contract between agents that says, ‘I promise you that I will always provide the latest data to you,'” says Michael Frank, fellow and system architect at Arteris IP. “It is mostly important when you have a lot of people sharing the same data set. Coherence between equal peers is very important and will not go away.”

Semiconductor Engineering: Amdahl Limits On AI

Amdahl Limits On AI

December 9th, 2021 - By Brian Bailey

The application of old techniques to new problems only gets you so far. To remove limitations in AI processors, new thinking is required.


“If you can’t parallelize a section, the serial section determines the maximum speed up,” says Michael Frank, fellow and system architect at Arteris IP. “If you assume that you can parallelize infinitely at times, the parallel section becomes limited by the bandwidth that you have available in the system. So there is a maximum that I can parallelize, because I run out of bandwidth.”
