Kalray Unveils Coolidge™ at CES 2020
Kalray (Paris:ALKAL), a pioneer in processors for new intelligent systems, today announced the company will showcase its MPPA-3 aka Coolidge™, its third generation of unique and patented MPPA® (Massively Parallel Processor Array) processor family at CES 2020 in Las Vegas, from January 7 to 10, 2020.
COOLIDGE™ DEMONSTRATED AT CES
Just a few weeks after having received the first samples of Coolidge from manufacturing, Kalray will showcase a complete Artificial Intelligence use case running on Coolidge at CES, including a common demo with NXP, one of the leading semiconductor companies.
Coolidge samples general availability is planned for April.
COOLIDGE UNIQUELY POSITIONED FOR THE BOOMING MARKET OF INTELLIGENT SYSTEMS
Coolidge represents a 25X performance improvement (1) over second generation MPPA, with improvement of artificial intelligence capacities, increased ease of programming and higher-performance interfaces in particular for next generation of data centers.
Coolidge is targeting the booming market of intelligent systems, from next generation of data center infrastructure, 5G to next generation of cars. Coolidge is a compelling choice versus FPGA, which are expensive and difficult to program; GPU, which are tailored for mathematical algorithms; and AI processors, designed for AI only. Coolidge-based cards can be configured to deliver specialized acceleration performance in a wide set of demanding functions such as vision, signal processing, encryption, software stacks, real-time protocols, etc.
Eric Baissus, CEO of Kalray comments: “Yet another important phase for the company. Coolidge is the platform to support company's ambitions on data center markets, answering needs of growing diversity of Data Center workload acceleration and on automotive, enabling integration of multiple critical functions on the same chip while providing huge computing performance.”
DATA CENTER’S GROWING NEED FOR ACCELERATIONS AT COMPUTE, STORAGE AND NETWORKING
“2CRSi is eager to evaluate the new Coolidge processor from Kalray and excited to explore solutions leveraging Kalray’s configurable cards. The performance of this third-generation processor will enable an expansion of our offer in high-growth areas such as Artificial Intelligence or compute acceleration, while enabling more and more distributed and disaggregated data center implementations”, said Alain Wilmouth, CEO of 2CRSi.
AUTOMOTIVE AND EMBEDDED MARKETS NEED FOR INTEGRATION OF MULTIPLE CRITICAL FUNCTIONS AND HIGH COMPUTE PERFORMANCE
“We are very happy to see the strategic partnership with Kalray reach a new milestone and have Coolidge integrated into the NXP BlueBox, our development platform for automated driving, showcased at CES. We are convinced NXP and Kalray will bring multiple benefits to the development and industrialization of ADAS and AD vehicles with safe and secure solutions integrating multiple critical functions and providing very high computing performance” said Kamal Khouri, Vice President & General Manager, Advanced Driver Assistance, NXP.
Coolidge has been designed to address the challenges and constraints of the new generation of intelligent systems:
- High computing power with low energy consumption
- Open and easily programmable system
- Real-Time data processing and deterministic behavior
- Concurrent execution of many heterogeneous critical tasks in parallel on a single chip
- Advanced security and safety mechanisms suitable for the most demanding systems, defined in collaboration with Kalray’s partners in the aerospace, defense and automotive fields
For more information and to view the demonstrations, come and visit us at CES from January 7 to 10 at Las Vegas, USA: NXP’s booth #CP18, Central Plaza.
