Wave Computing Adopts Low Power MIPS 64-bit Multi-Threaded Core

Company to Use MIPS Technology in its Next Generation AI Systems Spanning Hyperscale Datacenter to Edge-of-Cloud Applications

CAMPBELL, Calif., March 7, 2018 — Wave Computing®, the Silicon Valley company that is revolutionizing artificial intelligence (AI) and deep learning with its dataflow-based solutions, announced today that it has selected a 64-bit Multi-Threaded processor core from MIPS Technologies for future AI solutions. Wave will use the MIPS core in its next generation of Dataflow Processing Unit (DPU) chips that will ship in Wave’s future deep learning systems to handle device control functions including management of the real-time operating system (RTOS) and system-on-chip (SoC) subsystem.

“Wave Computing is revolutionizing AI with its deep learning solutions, and we are pleased they have selected MIPS to enable their next-generation systems,” said Dado Banatao, Chairman of the Board for MIPS Technologies and Managing Partner at Tallwood Venture Capital. “MIPS leads the world of 64-bit embedded cores and our Multi-Threading technologies set us apart from others. Moreover, the efficiency and extensibility of the MIPS processor architecture is well suited to deep learning and AI. This agreement underlines the depth of MIPS’ focus on and commitment to the next generation of intelligent applications.”
