4th Open-Domain Specific Architecture (ODSA) Workshop - Registration Required
Sep 12, 2019 - IBM Research Center, 650 Harry Road, San Jose, CA 95120
The Open Compute Project (OCP), in conjunction with IBM and Netronome, presents the 4th workshop on the Open-Domain Specific Architectures (ODSA) sub-group. Domain-specific architectures are programmable ASICs designed to accelerate high-intensity workloads. The OCP ODSA sub-project aims to reduce the complexity and cost of designing high-performance accelerators by enabling accelerators to be built from chiplets. Chiplets are an emerging approach to reduce the cost of ASIC development by composing them from multiple die to reduce development time and manufacturing costs. The ODSA aims to define an open interface to enable easy interoperation across chiplets from multiple vendors. IC designers can then build products with best-of-breed chiplets for each function. Attend this workshop to be introduced to and work on the ODSA project. The agenda will review work from the three work streams in the ODSA: (a) Building a proof-of-concept, multi-chiplet part that integrates die from multiple vendors; (b) Defining an open interface between chiplets; (c) Developing new workflow and business models for product development with chiplets. The agenda will also highlight recent results, including those presented at technical conferences and areas in which the ODSA project are looking for assistance. And interesting to note is that new topics presented at prior workshops at Global Foundries, Samsung and Intel have grown into ODSA projects. The workshop is an opportunity to mingle and exchange information with 100+ experienced engineers from over fifty companies working on chiplet and accelerator-related technologies.
