Grenoble, France - March 13, 2017 - Dolphin Integration, the leading Silicon IP provider for low-power SoC, announced today that it has been selected by GreenWaves Technologies to provide a consistent set of Silicon IPs for achieving the lowest power in sleep and active modes of GAP8, the industry’s first IoT processor. This set includes Dolphin Integration’s  low-power memories with embedded power-switches, unique  retention alternating voltage regulator (RAR),  ultra-low-power oscillator with its RTC, innovative  power gating solution (CLICK) with programmable control of in-rush current for the fastest mode transition time and  configurable fabric (Maestro™) for the design of the embedded activity controller of an SoC.

Headquartered near Grenoble, France, GreenWaves Technologies designs  GAP8, the industry’s first IoT processor. Based on the open-source  PULP project developed at the University of Bologna and ETH Zurich, the GAP8 SoC is an ultra-low power smart IoT solution that can analyze and classify rich data produced by image, sound and motion sensors. It can function for several years on a single battery and supports software for a wide variety of IoT wireless communication standards. Its 1+8 extended RISC-V ISA cores, combined with a convolutional neural network engine, provide an easy to program, very high processing power at a unique energy efficiency.

“Dolphin Integration’s Silicon IPs, already silicon proven in a representative low-power SoC test chip, allow us to deliver best in class power consumption figures in stand-by as well as very fast switching time between different operating Voltage / Frequency points. Furthermore, integrating those components into our SoC reduces significantly the overall system BOM while greatly simplifying the system design around GAP8.” said Loic Lietar, co-founder and CEO of GreenWaves Technologies. “FPGA demos of GAP8 are available to customers today, and GAP8 samples will be available in mid-2017.”

“GreenWaves Technologies has designed a leading-edge SoC architecture at 55 nm which embeds the complete power and activity control networks.” said Gilles Depeyrot, CEO of Dolphin integration. “We are proud to enable such an innovative SoC design with our Foundation, Feature and SoC Fabric Silicon IPs.”
