A Software-Defined SoC Interconnect Fabric for Enabling AI Applications
From autonomous vehicles to autonomous kitchen appliances, AI solutions must deal with the real world. These chips must combine real-time processing with machine learning accelerators running complex AI algorithms, which requires the implementation of high-performance heterogeneous architectures. This implies an architecture that must deal with real-time cache coherency between different processors running at different speeds and workloads. A software-defined interconnect fabric is a key enabling technology for next-generation AI systems and reducing the complexity of integrating heterogeneous architectures.
John Bainbridge is principle applications architect at NetSpeed Systems. John holds a PhD in computer science from University of Manchester, UK, and has more than 20 years of experience in SoC interconnect architecture, design, modelling and implementation. Prior to joining NetSpeed, he worked in interconnect and CPU architecture and deployment at Qualcomm, Sonics, Silistix and University of Manchester.
