This week, Intel became a new member of the chips alliance.As an industry alliance, chips alliance is not a large organization, but chip giants still attach great importance to its role in promoting the development of various applications of open source SOC and sip.In addition, Intel has generously contributed its own advanced interface bus to the chips alliance so that developers can easily access and interoperate with various compatible chips.
This technology has nothing to do with manufacturing process and packaging technology. It can be used in different types of packaging to connect various chips / small chips, including Intel's embedded multi chip interconnect bridging (emib), TSMC's chip on chip packaging (cowos), and other 2.5D technologies provided by many suppliers.
Now, Intel's decision to provide free access to its AIB interface to third parties, join chips alliance and contribute its technology is an important step to improve its adoption rate.
By providing AIB to quite a wide range of chip designers, Intel hopes to encourage the development of small chip ecosystem, realize the use with its own CPU, GPU, FPGA and other components, and build a special multi-core SIP package.
Now that chips alliance has gained control of the AIB advanced interface bus specification, the further development of this technology will be in the charge of the interconnects workgroup and will soon begin to operate.
As a member of the alliance, Intel will be able to make further contributions to the development of AIB. At the same time, the company will have a place on the board of directors of chips alliance.
"Intel's choice of chips alliance to guide AIB specification validation will have a profound impact on the organization's open-source software and hardware development tools. At the same time, we look forward to using AIB as an open source microchip interface more quickly. ".
