Silicon Hive launches parallel platform, licenses LSI
March 11, 2010 // Peter Clarke, EETimes.com
Silicon Hive BV (Eindhoven, The Netherlands) has introduced another manifestation of its parallel processing hardware acceleration technology called HiveLogic and announced it has licensed the platform to LSI Corp. (Milpitas, Calif.).
Silicon Hive has already introduced application-specific versions of
its technology aimed at audio, imaging and video applications under the
name HiveFlex. This has been deployed for connected multimedia
applications in smart phones and digital televisions.
The HiveLogic platform enables system-on-chip manufacturers to
apply parallel processing technology to range of applications from
medical implants to computationally-intensive wireless infrastructure
equipment, requiring thousands of GOPS, Silicon Hive said.
"Next generation communications systems require new approaches to
implementing digital signal processing," said Gene Scuteri, vice
president of Network Components Division at LSI, in a statement issued
by Silicon Hive. "The HiveLogic platform enables programmable
system-on-chips based on parallel processing, providing a new level of
compute performance and VLSI characteristics."
"The HiveLogic platform provides novel custom-DSP architectures
that perfectly match future requirements for wireless sensor network
and healthcare applications. Efficient implementations for wireless EEG
or ECG applications become possible when these ultra low-power DSP
architectures are combined with support for power and clock gating,"
said Jef van Meerbergen, Fellow at Philips Research and Professor at
the Technical University of Eindhoven, The Netherlands.
"Our vision is to bring Silicon Hive's parallel processing
technology to all system-on-chips, thereby creating competitive
advantages for manufacturers as well as unique experiences for
consumers in all walks of life. HiveLogic enables system-on-chip
manufacturers to realize compelling proprietary products at a rapid
pace, thereby broadening Silicon Hive's accessible market and bringing
us a step further in realizing our vision," said Jeroen Leijten, chief
technology officer of Silicon Hive.
"Under constrained silicon area and power consumption
conditions, HiveLogic enables us to improve compute performance by a
factor five to ten compared to alternative technologies," said Scuteri.
