ICCAD 2020 releases the world’s highest performance RISC-V-based
processor core – the Tianshu family of processors
China IC Design Industry 2020 Annual Meeting and Chongqing IC Industry Innovation and Development Summit Forum (ICCAD 2020) was concluded in Chongqing Yuelai International Conference Center from December 10 to 11, 2020.
The conference discussed the opportunities and challenges faced by the integrated circuit industry, especially the integrated circuit design industry. Enhance innovation capability and enhance the comprehensive capability of China’s integrated circuit industry chain to meet market demand and enhance international competitiveness. The annual conference spans the fields of technology, market, application and investment, creating a platform for deepening exchanges and innovation cooperation for the entire industrial chain.
Tianshu series processors were released
In ICCAD Summit Forum, Xu Tao, CEO of StarFive Science and Technology, delivered a speech titled “StarFive Science and Technology Leading RISC-V Ecological Development”, reviewed the development of RISC-V ecology and the significant progress of StarFive Science and Technology this year, and released the Tianshu series processor core based on RISC-V with the highest performance in the world by StarFive Science and Technology.
Designed for the HPC application market, the processor fully supports out-of-order superscalar RVV version 1.0 extension instructions, and is the first hardware virtualization technology in the RISC-V industry to deliver superior performance to existing RISC-V processors in the industry. This release marks the leapfrog success of Saifang’s technology processor products and is an important milestone towards high-end processor cores. It also indicates that the global RISC-V kernel and technology development has entered a higher stage, which is of great significance to the global RISC-V technology.
In 2020, ICCAD has come to a perfect end, but the pace of China’s integrated circuit development will only go faster and faster.
