Semidynamics is a European supplier of RISC-V IP cores, specializing in high-performance cores with vector units that can be customized to address machine-learning and AI applications. A participant in the European Processor Initiative, the company's customizable, 64-bit RISC-V family of process-agnostic cores can handle large amounts of data for applications such as AI, machine learning, and high-performance computing.

Semidynamics' Atrevido core has out-of-order scheduling that leverages the company’s Gazzillion tech to handle highly sparse data with long latencies using the high-bandwidth-memory systems typical of legacy machine-learning applications. Gazzillion technology removes latency issues associated with CXL, and enables an SoC to be designed without a large silicon investment. The cores can be configured from two-way up to four-way to help accelerate Recommendation Systems. We speak to Roger Espasa, Founder and CEO of Semidynamics, about the company's technology.
