In this talk, we will present a configurable, low-power edge computing platform for efficient sensor signal processing. The platform is composed of a RISC-V processor core, a hardware accelerator, and a distributed memory architecture with dynamic content re-allocation. Following a strict hardware/model co-design approach, we have derived an optimized low-power hardware accelerator for temporal convolutional networks using a configurable array of processing elements with optimized access to the distributed memory architecture. We have integrated different RISC-V processor cores into our edge computing platform and will present the results of two alternative core implementations in Globalfoundries’ 22FDX technology.
