Baum’s Power Analysis Suite is Adopted by FuriosaAI

PowerBaum Used to Optimize Power in an AI Chipset

Baum power model enables fast and accurate transient power analysis for long usage scenarios, which is very difficult with other power simulation solutions.”

— June Paik, CEO of FuriosaAI

SEOUL, KOREA, November 21, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Baum, an electronic design automation (EDA) company, today announced that FuriosaAI, a fabless semiconductor company focusing on AI chip architecture, used Baum’s power analysis suite to lower both peak power and average power consumption of their AI chip, Warboy, and plan to continue applying it in the design of next generation chips.

FuriosaAI’s Warboy, designed for high performance computer vision, has demonstrated better performance in image classification and object detection processing compared to NVIDIA T4 in the MLPerf inference benchmark results.

“Baum power model enables fast and accurate transient power analysis for long usage scenarios, which is very difficult with other power simulation solutions.” said June Paik, CEO of FuriosaAI. “Transient analysis is a key in detecting the scenarios causing abrupt power changes and in extracting detailed power breakdown which our designers heavily rely on for power optimization. In addition, the AI chip instantiates multiple processing elements, and PowerBaum is innovative in creating a power model of one processing element, which itself is instantiated multiple times for AI chip power analysis.”

“Baum is delighted to provide FuriosaAI with the power analysis tools they need to optimize the power and thermal efficiency of their current and future Warboy product lines,” remarked Youngsoo Shin, co-CEO of Baum. “PowerBaum’s very high-speed and assurance of implementation accuracy combine for an ideal power analysis solution across FuriosaAI’s entire development phase.”

"Large and complex chip designers such as FuriosaAI can benefit even more by using Baum's technology in a hardware emulation environment." said Joonhwan Yi, co-CEO of Baum, "Baum power models can accurately analyze power consumption considering glitches with emulator-generated FSDB files."

Baum will showcase its technology at Design Automation Conferences, San Francisco, CA, USA, on December 6-9.

The Latest Version of PowerBaum

PowerBaum automatically generates high-level power models from design sources and applies advanced learning techniques of gate-level behavior to achieve very high accuracy. Baum power models run in higher abstraction environments, such as RTL simulation, ESL (virtual prototypes), and hardware emulation to achieve orders of magnitude performance improvement compared to competing solutions in the market. Baum’s automated power analysis and power modeling solutions support both dynamic and leakage power, taking in register transfer level (RTL) and netlist descriptions of the design.

PowerBaum 2.9 is shipping today and available globally. Pricing is available upon request.
