Chip Architecture Trends in 2022

Tue, Jun 14 2022, 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm PDT              Chip Architecture Trends in 2022 1


Held annually since August 1989, HOT CHIPS has become an important tech symposium for the semiconductor industry’s high-performance processors and ICs. In light of advances in the industry over the past year, this presentation will describe many of last year’s important announcements, what has happened in the industry since that time, and what is expected at this year’s gathering – including the following:

  • Processor architectures geared toward AI and machine learning
  • The trend toward 3D chip architectures to overcome current limitations
  • Maturing chiplet standardization, including the Universal Chiplet Interconnect Express (UCIe) spec which standardizes die-to-die interconnects
  • AI and machine learning inside EDA itself for boosting chip floor plans
  • The expanding importance of Compute Express Link (CXL) for CPU-to-memory connections
  • Special purpose data center, cloud and edge computing technologies
