Soft Machines Unveils VISC Processor and SoC

Soft Machines Inc. revealed its VISC processor and SoC roadmap at the Linley Processor Conference. The first VISC processor, Shasta, will deliver unprecedented performance efficiency levels. Soft Machines also disclosed the highly scalable Mojave VISC SoC platform, which can be customized for smart mobile to server applications. Both Shasta and Mojave will be released in 2016. Shasta delivers on the promise of the VISC architecture, which was unveiled in October 2014. The VISC architecture offers 2-3 times instructions per cycle (IPC) speedup, with up to 4 times performance per watt over CPUs. The VISC architecture is based on virtual cores that permit one processor thread to operate concurrently on multiple processor cores, overcoming many single-core frequency and power-scaling issues, and multicore programming challenges. VISC also includes a virtual software layer that makes it portable to all CPU ISAs and ecosystems.
