Andes Technology Provides System Control Processor IP for Wave Computing’s Revolutionary Dataflow Processing Unit Design

Hsinchu, Taiwan. – June 19, 2017 – Andes Technology Corporation (TWSE: 6533), the leading Asia-based supplier of small, low-power, high performance embedded CPU IP, today announced that Wave Computing’s revolutionary Dataflow Processor Unit (DPU) chip leverages Andes system control processor IP in its current generation design. Andes processor IP, bus fabric, peripheral IP, and complete open software development environment provided Wave’s design team a complete drop-in solution that reduced verification effort and cost.

“Building a leading-edge 6.7 GHz design at 16 nanometer with 16,000 processors demands an engineering team’s complete commitment and focus,” said Darren Jones, Vice President of Hardware Engineering at Wave Computing. “Andes drop-in solution and related software enabled us to easily integrate a complete system control subsystem into our SOC.”

“We are thrilled that Wave Computing, an existing customer, used Andes IP in its industry leading deep-learning DPU design,” said Charlie Hong-Men Su, Ph.D., Andes Technology CTO and Senior Vice President of R&D. “Andes IP provided Wave with a complete drop-in solution that can be programmed in software to perform housekeeping functions such as boot code loading, sequencing the power-up of the chip, and monitoring the heat profile of the chip as it carries out its tasks. And our feature-rich AndeSight Eclipse-based integrated software development environment provided Wave an efficient way to develop embedded applications for their Andes system controller IP with small code size and high performance.”
