NeoLogic Unveils Novel Processor Design Technology at 16nm, Promising Significant Power, Cost, and Area Reductions

Israeli processor technology startup NeoLogic is launching a groundbreaking processor design technology that is poised to revolutionize chip design. The company expects to tapeout an ARM processor at 16 nanometers for demonstration this December. The technology and the processor will be available for evaluation to key selected customers.

NeoLogic’s Quasi-CMOS technology serves as a platform for processor design. It delivers high computing power in tandem with reduced power consumption and cost.

The company has completed the development of new, non-existing, standard cells for the 16nm technology node, on top of the existing CMOS standard cells library. NeoLogic’s standard cells are single-stage high fan-in (8 to 16 inputs), among others, leading to up to 50% reduction in power consumption compared to the most advanced equivalent CMOS cells while saving up to 40% of the area.

The technology was conceived to address the increasing workloads in data centers and the need to reduce the high costs associated with developing processors using advanced technology nodes. Designing processors with Quasi-CMOS delivers superior computing power per watt per millimeter square, catering to the escalating workloads of artificial intelligence, machine learning, data analysis, video streaming, and more in data centers.

CMOS technology, which has been the “workhorse” of processor design and fabrication for the past 40 years, is nearing its limits and is challenging to improve. Quasi-CMOS breaks through these limitations by significantly increasing the maximum number of inputs of standard cells and by changing their topology to reduce the number of transistors. This breakthrough benefits the logic synthesis as well as the physical design.

Dr. Avi Messica, Co-founder and CEO of NeoLogic, stated: “Utilizing Quasi-CMOS for processor development delivers a technological leap in performance. Our design technology enables us to design a 16nm processor that delivers performance equivalent to more advanced – sub 16nm – technology nodes, while saving development (NRE) and manufacturing (OPEX) costs. Reducing the processor’s power consumption in data centers leads to significant cost savings (cooling, electricity, infrastructure).”
