Cloud Computing AI Servers

AI servers process tremendous amounts of data for deep learning workloads including training and inference which require a large memory capacity, high bandwidths, and cache coherency within the overall system. AI server system-on-chip (SoC) designs involve tradeoffs: high performance; low power; need for cache coherency; integrating high bandwidth interfaces that are scalable to many cores; implementing heterogeneous processing HW accelerators; addressing Reliability-Availability-Serviceability (RAS); massively parallel deep learning neural network processing; advanced FinFET technologies. Synopsys offers a portfolio of DesignWare IP in advanced FinFET processes that address the specialized processing, acceleration, and memory performance requirements of AI servers.
