Detection chip KiloCore electronic and containing 1000 processor




It revealed a team of researchers at the University of California last week for chip KiloCore, which is an electronic chip containing a thousand processor, and can perform 1.78 trillion in the second instruction.

The slide containing the 621 million transistors, and is considered highly beneficial for the tasks that need to be implemented to work in parallel, such as encryption and processing of scientific data and video encoding.

The new chip offers, along with ownership of the nucleus A central processing, high energy efficient than any other chip with processors that range.

The new chip can be operated depending on the energy generated by a single AA battery type, it is also able to carry 115 billion in the second instruction with the disbursement of the energy equivalent of 0.7 watts.

And research cooperation with IBM IBM team to build a chip using technology 32-nanometer relatively old technology instead of 14 nanometers, and the US Department of Defense funded the construction of the wafer,

The new chip dimensions 7.94 × 7.82 mm, so that has a processor 18 in every 1 Millie meters, as can the number of nuclei of the chip that works on and off, which need not have control.

It was the wafer processing thousand routing paths device, and 12 memory module to deal with requests for data and instructions, and operates within the nucleus of every wafer at an average frequency of 1.78 GHz.

Bass explained Bevan Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of California that KiloCore chip design is more efficient and flexible than GPUs because it can be programmed each core of nuclei Allov independently.

And using GPUs technical work “single instruction, multiple data” SIMD parallel computing, while using the chip KiloCore work instructions “multiple, multiple data” MIMD technology.

As the researchers create a software interpreter and compiler tools mapping dedicated to programming slide.
