SoC design solution provider Semifive has announced its latest SoC Platform targeting high performance compute (HPC) applications. Built on the company’s in-house methodology used in its first two SoC Platforms (AI Inference Platform and AIoT Platform), the HPC SoC Platform is designed and optimized on Samsung Foundry’s mass production proven 5nm FinFET technology.

The HPC SoC Platform, says the company, offers the ideal approach to realize custom HPC chips and ASICs for end applications such as high-end AI, hyperscale data centers, cloud servers, network and storage processors. Pre-verified and integrated, the 5nm HPC SoC Platform includes state-of-art high speed GDDR6 and PCIe Gen5 interfaces as well as a quad-core 64-bit Arm Cortex-A53 CPU cluster for balanced high performance and compute power efficiency.

As part of the complete SoC Platform solution to accelerate final product, the company offers package design and implementation, board support packages as well as software development services.

“Based on strong market traction, we continue to expand our SoC Platform offerings and this time for high performance compute audience who desires to have faster, easier and reliable access to custom silicon,” says Brandon Cho, CEO and founder of Semifive. “Leveraging the close partnership with our lead customer and Samsung Foundry, we have successfully completed on-time tape out of our first 5nm ASIC chip. Leveraging the HPC SoC Platform, Semifive has opened up access for chip designs needing high speed interfaces like GDDR6 or PCIe Gen5 much easier and we can quickly turn your critical IPs and winning specifications into fully functioning SoC at a fraction of risk, time, and effort.”

The company’s SoC platform solution is offered as drastically lowering chip development cost, schedule and risks, allowing more diverse industry players to innovate and challenge the semiconductor landscape. Multiple adopters have benefited from its AI Inference platform and AIoT platform with a recent successful tape out of an AI custom SOC in just about six months from kick-off discussions, says the company.

More details of the 5nm HPC SoC Platform and other updates will be showcased at the Samsung Foundry Forum and SAFETM Forum events, where Semifive is participating on-site at the various global venues (USA, EMEA, Japan and Korea).
