offers comprehensive hardware and software solutions that
simplify the task of migrating from serial processing to manycore
Unlike other multicore processors that are designed as
processors, Plurality’s HyperCore Architecture Line (HAL)
intended to be general-purpose accelerators. There are many algorithmic
for which HAL is well suited. Typical applications include graphics
acceleration, image processing, video surveillance, gaming, networking,
security, and communication.
technology enables production of powerful chips whose small die
size and power efficiency result in an order of magnitude improvement
performance per watt over current general purpose multicore solutions.
IP is offered under license in RTL or GDS II formats.
Plurality’s IP licenses include the following building blocks:
cores ranging from 16

the performance of HyperCore products of up to 256-core
with the cycle accurate simulator. The toolset includes:
hardware-based low-latency, high-throughput Synchronizer/Scheduler
manages the cores, provides nearly linear speedup, and ensures
load balancing among the cores;
enables developers to easily write new parallel code or recompile
code, and to scale it for use with tens or hundreds of cores often
change, and ensures efficient task load balancing among the cores
that provides each core with direct, equidistant access to memory. Both
shared cache and shared memory blocks are available.
