The 20th HiPEAC conference held in Bologna, Italy, from January 20th to 22nd hosted several workshops attended by the members of the European Processor Initiative. One of those, organized by HA2RC as members of EPI, was the tutorial called “First steps towards a made-in-Europe high-performance microprocessor”, covering the latest in EPI.
Josip Knezović, Vice-president of the Center, gave a general introduction into the tutorial, while partners from EPI followed in presenting particular topics, like General EPI overview and details of EPI’s Common Platform and Rhea 1st implementation, accelerators in EPI and EPI power management, and EPI PCIe daughter card as software development vehicle. The tutorial was closed by a presentation on Bringing up EPI RISC-V Vector architecture Software, with a demonstration on software-emulated vector instruction explorations for RISC-V-based accelerator.
