Hyperion-Core provides a novel processor concept eliminating the limitations of today's established architectures without endangering the underlying software environment. Hyperion-Core is both increasing the number of concurrently processed instructions and boosting the data transmission bandwidth. Hyperion-Core can be implemented as stand-alone processor or as an extension to existing processor and instruction set architectures.

Hyperion-Core's high energy efficiency and performance allows replacing dedicated hardware accelerators and inhomogeneous DSP subsystems. Hyperion-Core based platforms are completely software programmable by standard tools. Respective platforms support easy functional updating and are highly adaptable when the requirements change.

Hyperion-Core has filed ten patents in the USA, three of Hyperion-Core’s applications have already been granted. Simulations of the architecture have been performed on the basis of ARM and Intel architectures. The available IP package includes the processor core, the test bench, the GNU tool chain and a C-compiler.

Peter W Weber, President/CEO



 

 

 

 

 

   

Peter is a veteran of the high-tech industry. He started his career in Europe with Texas Instruments and Signetics followed by executive management positions with Intel in Europe and the US, Siliconix, the TEMIC Group and Netro Corporation. Since 1998 Peter has been an investor and business angel and serves on the Boards of private and public companies in Europe and the US. He met Martin while he was Chairman of PACT XPP Technologies AG. Peter holds a MSEE degree in Communications Engineering.

 

 

Martin Vorbach, CTO

   

 

Martin started his first microprocessor company while still in Highschool. After he dropped out of University he founded PACT XPP Technologies, a recognized leader in the field of reconfigurable processors. PACT's technology has been licensed to major US semiconductor companies. Recognizing the limitations of today's leading microprocessor architectures he joined forces with Peter to found Hyperion-Core in California. Martin is known as a pioneer in the area of parallel processing and has more than 200 patents in his name.

 

 

Dr. Markus Weinhardt, Compiler Development


    

Markus headed up PACT XPP Technologies compiler development before he decided to join Academia. As well-known compiler specialist for reconfigurable processor architectures he is now heading Hyperion-Core' compiler design. He is a Professor for Hardware/Software Systems at the Osnabrueck University of Applied Sciences, Germany. His main professional interests are in the area of reconfigurable processor architectures, digital design, and compiler construction.

 

 

Dr. Martin Burtscher, Senior Adviser

    

 

Martin is a renowned specialist for parallelizing complex and irregular algorithms. His research focuses on efficient parallelization of programs for accelerators, high-speed data compression, and energy-efficiency optimization. He has authored over 90 scientific publications. His research has been funded by Intel, NVIDIA, Microsoft, the NSF, and the DOE. Martin is a Professor in the Department of Computer Science at Texas State University.  

 

 

Dr. PE Seeram Ramakrishna, Scientific Adviser
