Imsys in Sweden has developed a RISC-V processor core and is part of a project to develop an AI accelerator in space.

Imsys points to a general EU strategy to invest more in the open RISC-V technologyt to strengthen technical independence, stimulate economic growth and increase the pace of innovation, and Imsys is currently applying for EU projects where this is a strength.

RISC-V is also important for designers building chips for space applications, where Imsys works with the Swedish Space Agency and Frontgrade Gaisler and the European Space Agency (ESA). 

Imsys is part of the Morpheus 2024 project, due to start in May, which aims to develop an AI accelerator with a defined roadmap for future space projects within Europe.

“This ESA invitation is a result of Imsys’ successful collaboration with Frontgrade Gaisler within the company’s project with the Swedish Space Agency. It is further proof that Imsys’ technology is at the absolute forefront of space applications and that our accelerator and its technology can find new business opportunities in international space industry,” says Jonas Wærn, CEO of Imsys.

“For our existing customers, this means more opportunities to tailor solutions and increase customer benefits. This applies to business opportunities within the industrial, automotive and space segments,” he added.

“Imsys is investing more in open architectures where we commercialize our know-how through our own development and specific work efforts. For a small technology-heavy company like Imsys, it gives us more strengths and reduces risk.”

The company launched a dual core version of its proprietary configurable IM3000 processor in January 2023 with a software stack that enables developers to add custom C instructions.

The IM4000 processor core is being implemented in a Xilinx/AMD FPGA and in the 22nm process at GlobalFoundries and is aimed at upscale white goods, automotive and battery powered smart sensor applications.
