Encouraging your innovation in artificial intelligence via flexible RISC-V open instruction set architecture (ISA) designs.
“Esperanto is at the leading edge of technology putting thousands of RISC-V cores on a single chip.”
“With thousands of 64-bit RISC-V cores on one chip, Esperanto will deliver TeraFlops/Watt of scalable computing performance for artificial intelligence, machine learning, and other applications.”
“NetSpeed and Esperanto share a similar gene—we are both at the leading edge of what can be done in our respective domains… It is indeed an honor to work with a trailblazing partner like Esperanto.”
“Esperanto exemplifies how members of the RISC-V community are working together to accelerate the wide adoption of the RISC-V architecture, and for expanding our partner and developer ecosystem.”
“All in all, Esperanto is moving in the right direction for completing the RISC-V ecosystem. The lower cost and growing selection of RISC-V solutions, coupled with a rapidly growing software ecosystem, represent a real and viable alternative to ARM.”
“Yes, I’ve seen the RISC-V light. Chief protagonist in my conversion was the high priest of microprocessor design himself, Dave Ditzel.”
“The motivation for Esperanto is that there is no RISC-V alternative to high end ARM processors. Without that, it is hard for many companies to make an architectural switch…”
“Besides announcing its RISC-V plans, Western Digital also disclosed that it had made a strategic investment in Esperanto Technologies, a developer of RISC-V-based SoCs.”
“… Esperanto Technologies is looking to use RISC-V technology in artificial-intelligence (AI) and machine-learning (ML) applications. These days, ML, which is a branch of AI, means deep neural networks (DNNs). That, in turn, requires high-performance computing tailored for processing these types of networks.”
“The company was founded by Dave Ditzel, who previously had founded Transmeta… Dave has put together an extensive team of industry veterans along with a few rising stars in the processor business.”
“[RISC-V] has truly hit phenomenon status … Disruption is coming to the CPU IP market and we will have a front row seat. Disruption is for the greater semiconductor good, absolutely!”
“The minimalist flexibility and technology agnosticism of the RISC-V ISA makes it applicable in processor designs ranging from embedded MCUs to high-performance data center processors, as well as in heterogeneous system on chips (SoCs) that include multiple IP cores.”
“Next-generation applications in machine learning, AI, and real-time analytics require the highest levels of performance and optimization for these advanced workloads. The RISC-V platform, and Esperanto solutions, free developers to innovate and optimize for special-purpose computing.”
