eProcessor: European, extendable, energy- efficient, extreme-scale, extensible, Processor Ecosystem
The eProcessor ecosystem combines open source software (SW) /hardware (HW) to deliver the first completely open source European full stack ecosystem based on a new RISC-V CPU coupled to multiple diverse accelerators that target traditional HPC and extend into mixed precision workloads.
eProcessor will be extendable (open source), energy-efficient (low power), extreme-scale (high performance), suitable for uses in HPC and embedded applications, and extensible (easy to add on-chip and/or off-chip components), hence, the “e” used as a wildcard in eProcessor proposal name.eProcessor combines cutting edge research utilizing SW/HW co-design to achieve sustained processor and system performance for HPC workloads by combining a high performance low power out-of-order processor core with novel, adaptive on-chip memory structures and management, as well as fault tolerance features. These co-design solutions span the full stack from applications to runtimes, tools, OS, and the CPU and accelerators. eProcessor is able to pursue a full stack (SW and HW) research project by leveraging and extending the work done in multiple European projects such as the European Processor Initiative. By doing so, we can improve the TRL and work with industrial partners that provide a direct path to commercialization.
