Join Kalray at Embedded World 2017!
Booth 4A-330, March 14-16, 2017

Kalray is excited to announce its participation as an exhibitor at Embedded World. If you plan on being in Nuremberg for the event, we invite you to stop by our booth!

Kalray is a leader in manycore technology, offering its unique manycore processor, the Massively Parallel Processor Array (MPPA®) that boasts 288 cores! Embedded World will give visitors the chance to learn about Kalray and discover what the MPPA® will bring to the world of embedded applications. Four demonstrations will catch your eye:

MPPA® Multiple Computer Vision Application Demonstration:

Kalray’s demonstration will show how computer vision applications can berun using the multiple application abilities of the MPPA®. With 16 clusters of 16 cores, the massive parallelization of the MPPA® presents a wealth of possibilities for computer vision. Multiple inputs can be processed on the same chip, with clusters working independently of one another. For applications, like autonomous vehicles, that need to process numerous diverse inputs, this capacity will provide endless possibilities.


MPPA® Deep Learning Demonstration:

The MPPA®’s unique architecture lends itself particularly well to processing deep learning algorithms, the key components for Artificial Intelligence (AI). Kalray will demonstrate how the low latency MPPA® can be used for object identification. An explanation of the demonstration will describe the benefits of using the MPPA® as opposed to GPUs for deep learning processing.

Kalray/ANSYS joint demonstration:

SCADE Suite® is a product line of the ANSYS® Embedded software family of products and solutions that empowers users with a Model-Based Development Environment for critical embedded software. ANSYS® has developed a new code generator that automatically generates multi/many-core code from any SCADE application. ANSYS® and Kalray collaborate to support Kalray’s MPPA® platform.

Kalray/P-SOCRATES joint demonstration:

P-SOCRATES(Parallel Software Framework for Time-Critical Many-core Systems) is a European project intended to allow current and future applications with high performance and real-time requirements to fully exploit the huge performance opportunities brought by the most advanced many-core processors.

P-SOCRATES will join Kalray Wednesday, March 15th at 4pm to demonstrate its Upscale SDK on Kalray’s AccessCore™ SDK.

Getting Self-Driving Cars on the Road
Tuesday, October 25, 2016

Kalray’s Stéphane Cordova, Director of the Embedded Technology Business Unit, will be speaking about how manycore technology will help autonomous vehicles get on the road. Details about his talk below:

Pas de véhicule autonome sans lidar, laser, multiprocesseur, vision 3D, intelligence artificielle, cartographie temps réel, logiciel embarqué, cybersécurité… Autant de domaines technologiques où les français – start-up, laboratoire, ou intégrateurs – excellent.

A l’occasion du Mondial de l’automobile qui se tient à Paris du 1er au 16 octobre 2016 et pour compléter le dossier du magazine Automobile : en route vers l’autonomie, Industrie et Technologies a sélectionné les 20 technologies made in France les plus prometteuses pour les véhicules autonomes.

Elles sont signées CEA, Dibotics, ESI Group, Inria, Kalray, KronoSafe, Navya, Oridao, Prove & Run, Stéréolabs, Robosoft, Sensup, Sentryo, TrustInSoft, Valéo, Yogoco… A découvrir tout au long de la semaine…

Industrie & Technologies, 20 sept 2016 :

De l’électronique imprimée aux lasers high tech, en passant par l’ultraminiaturisation des puces, la conception de composants en nitrure de gallium ou encore la fabrication d’Oleds sur-mesure et la sécurité des circuits intégrés, la rédaction d’Industrie & Technologies a repéré dix pépites françaises de l’électronique. Parmi elles, Kalray qui a mis au point une nouvelle génération de processeurs en silicium destinés aux centres de données et à l’automobile.

Fondée en 2008 en étroite collaboration avec le CEA-List, Kalray est basée à Orsay et Grenoble. Elle compte plus de 60 collaborateurs et déploie son activité à l’international. Cette pépite a mis au point une nouvelle génération de processeurs en silicium baptisés MPPA (massively parallel processor array). Basés sur une architecture massivement parallèle, ils offrent un excellent rapport performance de calcul/consommation énergétique (gigaflops/watt). Doté de 288 cœurs, un processeur de Kalray propose une très grande capacité de calcul, tout en fonctionnement à basse fréquence (environ 600 mégahertz). Ce qui autorise une faible consommation d’énergie. « Notre processeur consomme entre 10 et 20 watts selon son utilisation », précise Stéphane Cordova, directeur du département technologies embarquées.

BRUSSELS, Sept. 21, 2016 /PRNewswire/ — Kalray, a world leader in manycore processors, used its participation today at the Autosens connected car conference to showcase its Massively Parallel Processor Array (MPPA®) processors for autonomous vehicles. In order to deliver passengers safely to their destinations, self-driving vehicles need microprocessors that are both powerful and reliable, ensuring faultlessly high levels of performance and safety. With a determinist architecture and extremely low latency, Kalray’s MPPA® is particularly well-equipped for use in autonomous vehicles.

Kalray has begun working with some of the automotive industry’s key manufacturers to put its MPPA® technology at the heart of the electronics systems of their new fleets of self-driving vehicles. Because the MPPA® processor brings together a rare combination of high performance, guaranteed safety and low power consumption, these vehicles are able to perform multiple, diverse tasks in parallel, without sacrificing safety or performance. Kalray’s processor performs the following tasks:

  • sensor fusion
  • deep learning
  • network security

“We are enthusiastic about introducing our embedded processing technology into the domain of autonomous vehicles,” said Stéphane Cordova, director of the Embedded Business Unit at Kalray. “It is important that self-driving cars be equipped with the most reliable and highest-performing technology and Kalray is confident that it can provide an unparalleled solution for automotive companies developing autonomous vehicles.”

Kalray will be showcasing its MPPA® technology throughout the Autosens event with a live Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) demonstration.
