A Free Tutorial Workshop, hosted by the Open Compute project Foundation, collocated with the Chiplet Summit

Participating in the New Open Chiplet Economy

When: January 24th, 1PM - 4PM

Moderator: Cliff Grossner, Ph.D., VP Market Intelligence & Innovation, OCP

Workshop Organizers:

  • Cliff Grossner, Ph.D., VP Market Intelligence & Innovation, OCP
  • Bapi Vinnakota, Ph.D., ODSA Project Lead, OCP

Specialized hardware is needed to meet the demands of modern workloads and is driving an evolution in the silicon supply chain from delivering system on chip (SOC) to multivendor ecosystems building system in package (SiP)s, with “drop in Chiplets” needed for SiP construction. In effect a new Chiplet economy is emerging and will require collaboration and standardizations on multiple dimensions, ensuring that companies are able to interact in an open efficient and scalable manner. Within the Chiplet economy ecosystem organizations will take different roles, those creating Chiplets, those building SiPs using Chiplets they have sourced externally combined with internally developed Chiplets, and those that provide support for this ecosystem with design tools, test facilities, and professional services. Join this tutorial to hear from end users describe their latest use cases, SiP builders applying the latest technologies, vendors providing the latest tools for SiP production at scale, and an analyst led panel session discussing key enablers still needed to create a vibrant open Chiplet economy.


OCP Keynote – Chiplet Summit held January 25th and 26th, 2023

Establishing a New Open Chiplet Economy

Speakers:

  • Bapi Vinnakota, Ph.D., Open Domain Specific Architecture Project Lead, OCP

There has been a Cambrian explosion in the types of workloads requiring parallel computation and manipulation of very large data sets, driving demand for specialized computational infrastructure. This infrastructure will be realized using Chiplets, and at the OCP we believe an open Chiplet economy is the best way to achieve this transition from monolithic silicon dies to Chiplets. Development of a Chiplet economy requires collaboration and standardizations on multiple dimensions, ensuring that companies are able to interact in an open efficient and scalable manner. Within the Chiplet economy ecosystem organizations will take different roles, those creating Chiplets, those building ASICs using Chiplets they have sourced externally combined with internally developed Chiplets, and those that provide support for this ecosystem with design tools, test facilities, and professional services. None of this would be possible without standardizations, tools and common best practice business workflows. Key activities within the OCP include standardizations to existing design models to ensure operability in EDA workflows, aiding the establishment of 3rd party testing to validate Chiplet designs, better supply chain methods enabling guarantees for Chiplets, best practices for assembling a System in Package (SiP) with predictable performance, standardizations for physical and logical Die-to-Die (D2D) interface for Chiplets. This keynote will provide an overview on how the new Chiplet economy is likely to be structured, the role of open community driven organizations such as the OCP, and how organizations can engage to benefit from this shift from SoC to SiP.
