Imagination Technologies enters the CPU field with RISC-V architecture

Imagination Technologies announced today (via Design & Reuse) Its financial results for the first half of 2021 show that the company is expected to achieve some degree of recovery after achieving a 55% year-on-year revenue growth, with revenue of US$76 million, compared with US$49 million in 2020. With the support of these results, Imagination therefore announced the next step to expand its influence and double the market success: the development and launch of the RISC-V CPU series, which will satisfy the discrete CPU market and the field of heterogeneous computing. The company’s most well-known products (at least from a consumer’s point of view) are based on its graphics IP, and Imagination’s PowerVR graphics are integrated into various smart phone chips. It seems a wise and logical step to increase their graphics capabilities through the internal interpretation of RISC-V. Interestingly, the company has launched a RISC-V training course as early as September 2020-this may be the first time the company demonstrated their aspirations for the architecture.

RISC-V is an open instruction set architecture (ISA), which consists of RISC-V basics, A non-profit organization established in 2015. The initial 29-person team achieved a veritable success. From the initial 29 members to more than 2,000 parties, they are all built on this architecture-where modularity is one of the key aspects. Unlike Arm, RISC-V does not require license fees-this is a key reason for its rapid growth since its launch.And don’t think it’s open source and the lack of licensing costs means it’s a substandard, cost-cutting architecture-open source architecture is always making progress Supercomputing and machine learning Market and a 1000-core supercomputer single chip design Recently announced from Esperanto.
