The European Processor Initiative (EPI) project aims at developing European processor technology for HPC and emerging application areas. Beyond leveraging Arm technology, an important objective of the project is to develop a fully owned implementation of a generic accelerator based on the RISC-V vector extension ISA.
The goal of this talk is to describe the fundamental vision behind the design of such an accelerator and its architectural features. I will report on the implementation status of the first version of the micro architecture. I will also present the software development vehicle (SDV) frameworks used to steer a holistic co-design approach including operating systems and overall system software developments to homogenize the heterogeneous combination of different cores in the overall platform.
