Think Silicon partners with SiFive

Think Silicon partners with SiFive’s DesignShare Ecosystem making its low-power graphics IP available through DesignShare and enabling companies of all sizes to develop custom silicon. SiFive, the first fabless provider of customized, open-source-enabled semiconductors, announced that Think Silicon, a leader in developing ultra-low power graphics IP technology, has joined the growing DesignShare economy. Through DesignShare, Think Silicon will make its complementary NEMA®|GPU and NEMA®|dc IP available for SiFive’s Freedom SoCs Platform at reduced upfront investment from customers. It is worth noting that the Power Models of NEMA®|GPUs (part of the NEMA® SW toolchain) were developed as part of the LPGPU2 EU-funded project.

With a silicon footprint 2.5 times smaller than competitive IP, Think Silicon’s proprietary compression techniques reduce the memory size six-fold, eliminating the need for external DDR memory. The result is a reduction of active power consumption by 73 percent, and 58 percent in idle mode.
