Quadric in the US has Introduced a Family of General-Purpose Neural Processors (GPNPUs) that Combine a Neural Processing Accelerator with Full C++ Programmability of a Digital Signal Processor (DSP)
(Nov 2, 2022) EENews Europe - A significant advantage of this new architecture is that neural network graphs and C++ code are merged into a single software code stream. Only one tool chain is required for scalar, vector, and matrix computations. Memory bandwidth is optimized by a single unified compilation stack that helps result in significant power minimization.
Quadric Chimera GPNPU IP Combines NPU, DSP, and Real-time CPU into One Programmable Core
(Nov 2, 2022) Embedded Systems News - According to Quadric, the main benefit of such design is simplifying system-on-chip (SoC) hardware design and subsequent software programming once the chip is available thanks to a unified architecture for machine learning inference as well as pre-and-post processing. Since the core is programmable it should also be future-proof.
