The Baum power model enables fast and accurate transient power analysis for long-use scenarios, which is very difficult with other power simulation solutions,”

— Hyung-min Yoon, CEO of Siliconarts

SEOUL, SOUTH KOREA, July 10, 2022 / — Electronic Design Automation (EDA) company Baum today announced that SiliconArts, a fabless semiconductor company specializing in ray-tracing GPU architecture, has used Baum’s technology power analysis suite to reduce both the peak power and average power consumption of their GPU, RAIV, and plan to continue to apply it in next-generation chip designs.

The SiliconArts RAIV is a general purpose GPU (GPGPU) that accelerates data processing and plays a key role in the development of major industries of the fourth industrial revolution, such as autonomous driving, IoT, VR/AR and data centers.

SiliconArts own graphics technology, the RayCore MC series, enables a scalable 3D GPU rendering solution from 1 Grays/sec to up to 10 Grays/sec for multi-core solutions that can be integrated into a thin GPU platform to provide futuristic capabilities for next-generation visualization. A higher performance rendering platform for dedicated and professional use cases can be scaled up to 100’s fo Grays/sec performance with a multi-chip board-level design. SiliconArts CEO Hyung-min Yoon Says laser trace movement is so critical to the user interface of our computing platform. We can expect ray tracing to be a core feature of all GPUs in the future.

“Baum’s power model enables fast and accurate transient power analysis for long-use scenarios, which is very difficult with other power simulation solutions,” Yoon said. “Transient analysis is essential for detecting scenarios causing sudden changes in power and for extracting detailed power outages that our designers rely heavily on to optimize power.

“Baum is excited to provide SiliconArts with the power analysis tools they need to optimize the power and thermal efficiency of their current and future RAIV product lines,” said Youngsoo Shin, co-CEO of Baum. “PowerBaum’s very high speed and assured implementation accuracy combine for an ideal power analysis solution throughout SiliconArts’ development phase. Designers of large and complex chips can benefit even more from Baum’s technology, especially with Operational Clock Gating Report (OCGR) results, which analyze the effectiveness of input clock gating. RTL in the early design stages. »

Baum will showcase its technology at the Design Automation Conferences, in San Francisco, CA, USA, July 10-14.

The latest version of PowerBaum

PowerBaum automatically generates high-level power models from design sources and applies advanced gate-level behavior learning techniques to achieve very high accuracy. Baum power models run in higher abstraction environments, such as RTL simulation, ESL (virtual prototypes), and hardware emulation to achieve orders of magnitude performance improvements over solutions competitors in the market. Baum’s automated power analysis and power modeling solutions support both dynamic power and leakage power, taking into account register transfer level (RTL) and netlist descriptions of design.

PowerBaum 2022.06 ships today and is available worldwide. The price is available on request.
