Development of a new processor to be at the core of future computing systems will be divided into several streams:
- Common Platform and global architecture stream
- HPC general purpose processor stream
- Accelerator stream
- Automotive platform stream
The results from the two streams related to the general-purpose processor and accelerator chips will generate a heterogeneous, energy-efficient CPU for use in both standard and non-traditional and compute-intensive segments, e.g. automotive where SoA in autonomous driving requires significant computational resources.
EPI strives to maximize the synergies between the two streams and will work with existing EU initiatives on technology, infrastructure and applications, to position Europe as a world leader in HPC and emerging markets for exascale era such as automotive computing for autonomous driving.
