What had been one monolithic baseband unit has been split into two functional units: a centralized unit (CU) and a distributed unit (DU). The simplicity of the nomenclature belies the difficulty of finding the most effective way to split a baseband unit in two; the industry is still hashing out the details.

For AI acceleration in servers of all kinds, AMD offers Radeon Instinct accelerator cards. The most powerful in the family is the Radeon Instinct MI50, launched in November 2018, which offers 13.3 TFLOPS peak single precision performance (FP32) or 26.5 TFLOPS at half precision (FP16) for AI training. For AI inference, the card offers 53 TOPS INT8 performance. It is built on AMD’s Vega 7nm GPUs.

Can you build semiconductors without having anything come across the borders?No, you can’t. It’s impossible,” says Hutcheson.

Ampere Computing recently released details of the 128-core chip,  Altra Max, its follow-on to the 80-core Altra it began shipping in March. Not only does the Altra Max have significantly more cores than any other server processor, performance improvement has scaled directly with the number of cores, the company boasts.

As the revival of U.S. chip manufacturing gathers momentum, pure-play technology foundry SkyWater Technology and GlobalFoundries will collaborate to extend domestic IC manufacturing capabilities sought by the Defense Department.

SiC FETs are already opening up new applications at higher power and higher switching frequencies.

It is and extremely challenging business with lots of risk, which is why there are very few major players left,” said a former Intel employee. I would agree Intel slipped up, but I would not bet against them nor would I expect them to jump ahead by huge margins in the future.”

Because we don’t have all the legacy processing, die size is smaller so we can compete on power, performance and cost, which almost never happens, getting to compete on all three axes,” Busch said. But there is no such thing as a free lunch. [Our chip] only does deep learning. It doesn’t do anything else.”
