New Energy Efficient Chip Design
Posted: 05-Apr-2006 [Source: IBM]

[The Kilocore1025 chip makes streaming live- and high-def video on a low-power, mobile device at five to 10 times the speed of existing processors possible.]

San Jose -- At the Embedded Systems Conference in San Jose, Power.org member Rapport Incorporated and IBM previewed a breakthrough energy-efficient processor design, the Kilocore1025, which will feature 1,024 eight-bit processing elements together with a PowerPC core on a single, low-cost chip.

Rapport and IBM are collaborating to utilize Power Architecture technology to provide high-performance processing with extremely low energy consumption. The result is expected to be one of the most energy-efficient processor designs of its kind.

Based on Rapport's Kilocore technology and IBM's Power Architecture technology, Rapport's next-generation Kilocore1025 chip will process information at higher speeds and orders of magnitude lower power than existing processors.

Rapport's current offering, the KC256, features 256 processing elements, provides more than 25 gigabyte operations/second at well under a single watt of power, and is available with tools and a development platform.

Kilocore-based processors address the shortcomings of conventional chips by putting hundreds or thousands of parallel processing elements together on small chips. These chips feature the most advanced, dynamic architecture available today in working silicon and can be dynamically reconfigured for compute-intensive applications, including mobile gaming, homeland security, server components, image processing, consumer electronics and suitcase supercomputing.

For example, with the Kilocore1025, a user will be able to view streaming live- and high-definition video on a low-power, mobile device at five to 10 times the speed of existing processors.

The IBM and Rapport collaboration is expected to bring disruptive solutions to the low-power computing marketplace. Rapport, an emerging Silicon Valley-based startup, will be contributing innovative software solutions as well as its unique Kilocore technology, and IBM will be providing world-class engineering services, foundry and ASIC technologies.
