Coherent Logix Picks SiFive To Complement Memory Network

SiFive, Inc., the provider of commercial RISC-V processor IP and silicon solutions, has announced that Coherent Logix has chosen SiFive Core IP to complement its HyperX™ memory network processor for its next-generation solutions targeting mission-critical markets, the company said.

Coherent Logix performed a comparison of CPU IP available in the market based on requirements of the military and aerospace customers and selected SiFive IP that enabled very low Size, Weight, Area, and Power (SWAP) of the overall solution.

The Coherent Logix HyperX™ Platform provides the tools and libraries needed to solve mission-critical problems in multiple disciplines, including hyperspectral and multispectral image/data fusion, software-defined radio, synthetic aperture radar, portable sensor systems, remote sensor platforms, surveillance receivers, anti-jam Global Positioning System, automatic target recognition and threat cueing, ad-hoc networking, and secure data transmission. The Coherent Logix HyperX™ platform features a large library of supported waveforms and delivers these capabilities in a low-power, high-performance environment.

SiFive´s Custom Instruction Extension feature accelerates domain-specific workloads, a key requirement for military and aerospace customers. SiFive has an extensive IP portfolio that can be used for solutions with SWAP constraints. In comparison to other solutions in the market, SiFive provides high-performance solutions with half to third of the power of competitor solutions1. SiFive Core IP deterministic real-time processing capabilities support low latency mission-critical workloads.

Coherent Logix, Inc. is a provider of low-power, high-performance, programmable processors for embedded systems markets. Coherent Logix´s comprehensive portfolio of solutions includes processors, integrated system development tools, optimized libraries, system reference designs, and a customizable system development platform that reduces development complexity and time to market. Our solutions support a wide variety of industries, Military/Aerospace, TV, Computer Vision, 5G, and IoT home markets.
