Kalray MPPA

Powered by the patented manycore architecture, Kalray’s MPPA represents a groundbreaking class of processors known as Data Processing Units (DPUs). The DPU is natively capable of managing massive data flows and multiple workloads with no bottlenecks to enable smarter, more efficient and energy-wise data-intensive applications.

Coolidge MPPA DPUs

Coolidge is the third generation of Kalray’s MPPA DPUs. They offer an unprecedented level of performance and programmability. It is a game changer for data-centric heterogenous processing tasks as it significantly increases the performance per Watt and per dollar. Kalray DPUs are engineered to strike a balance between performance and power consumption, providing organizations with optimized power usage and energy efficiency for their data processing workloads. The energy-efficient MPPA architecture maximizes energy efficiency without compromising processing capabilities.

Kalray MPPA® DPU Manycore

A Massively Parallel Processor Array Architecture

The world is facing an explosion of data which current technologies were not initially designed for and cannot always handle efficiently. The industry needs a new type of processor. Enter the era of Intelligent DPU (DataProcessing Unit) Processors.

The MPPA® DPU’s interconnects are suited to different types of data transfers. The first interconnect is an AXIFabric bus grid, for read/write accesses from cores to memories and peripherals connected by PCIe. The second interconnect is an RDMANoC(Network-on-Chip), that supports data transfers to or from the Ethernet network interfaces and connect all clusters together.

The overall architecture of the Kalray 3rd generation of MPPA® DPU (Data Processing Unit) processor aka Coolidge™ is based on a “Massively Parallel Processor Array” architecture, which is characterized by the association of computing clusters connected to each other, to the external memory and to the I/O interfaces via two independent interconnects.

The robust partitioning necessary for safe operation of the processor is carried out at the granularity of the computing cluster and is based on the configuration of memory management units (MMUs), memory protection units (MPUs), and on the deactivation or not of network on chip links.
