Lowering the Barrier to Chiplets

Chiplets are all the rage these days, even making MIT Technology Review's 10 Breakthrough Technologies of 2024. This is pretty incredible for such a niche technology! Unfortunately, as of today chiplets are only accessible to semiconductor mega-corps. To unlock the true power of disaggregated chiplet innovation, we need to drastically reduce the barriers to chiplet based design.

Switchboard, an Open Source High-Performance Communication Platform

Zero ASIC is thrilled to announce Switchboard, a high-performance open-source framework for communication between RTL simulations, FPGA emulations, Python, and C++. Switchboard makes it possible to simulate large hardware systems in a distributed fashion, using a wide variety of model types, and to interact with the modeled systems from popular software languages.

Cloud-based chip design for national security achieves key milestone

Continued U.S. leadership in emerging technology requires a sustainable supply of advanced chips to power innovation from artificial intelligence to quantum computing. The CHIPS and Science Act, passed last year, aims to boost domestic research and manufacturing capacity for critical microelectronics.

U.S. Focuses on Invigorating ‘Chiplets’ to Stay Cutting-Edge in Tech

Even with such subsidies, assembling all the elements required to reduce U.S. dependence on Asian companies “is a huge challenge,” said Andreas Olofsson, who ran a Defense Department research effort in the field before founding a packaging start-up called Zero ASIC. “You don’t have suppliers. You don’t have a work force. You don’t have equipment. You have to sort of start from scratch.”

Zero ASIC joins UCIe Consortium

The biggest barrier to the democratization of chiplets is the availability and adoption of a common standard. We need a "USB/PCIE/I2C/ethernet/..." for chiplets! At Zero ASIC we are committed to promoting open standards. Today I am happy to tell you that we have joined the UCIe industry group to help reduce the barrier to chiplet design and manufacturing!
