Tilera Named a 2012 "Design Team of the Year" by EE Times

SAN JOSE, CA--(Marketwire - Mar 6, 2012) - Tilera® Corporation, the leader in manycore general purpose microprocessors, today announced that is has been named a finalist for the 2012 EE Times ACE Awards -- now called the UBM Electronics ACE Awards -- in the category of "Design Team of the Year." Tilera joins the ranks of four other finalists: Intel and Micron IMFT Joint Development Project, Kontron, Philips Lumileds and SuVolta, Inc. The winner will be announced at an awards event taking place on Tuesday, March 27 at the Fairmont San Jose at 6:30 p.m.

The design team of the year award goes to a group of innovators whose collaborative efforts made a significant contribution to the furtherance of technology and whose project management abilities were creative, efficient and inspiring. In January, Tilera announced the availability of the world's highest performance per-watt 64-bit processor with the sampling of the first two members of its TILE-Gx™ family: the TILE-Gx16™ and the TILE-Gx36™. The devices contain 16 and 36 full featured 64-bit cores, respectively, providing never-before-seen performance and performance-per-watt.

  • In networking, a single TILE-Gx36 can deliver more than 40 gigabits per-second of L2/L3 packet forwarding performance across small and large packet sizes using only 25 watts of power.
  • In multimedia, a single TILE-Gx36 processor can deliver 20 channels of H.264 high-definition video transcoding.
  • In cloud, a single TILE-Gx36-based server can provide better performance than a Xeon-based system at one-fifth the power and one-eighth the space.

Beyond the leading edge IC design, Tilera's software engineers have developed the world's most advanced manycore programming environment, specifically designed to accelerate and optimize customer deployments using the TILE-Gx processor.

The 2012 UBM Electronics ACE Awards, presented by EE Times and EDN, showcases the best of the best in today's electronics industry, including the hottest new products, start-up companies, design teams, and executives. It will celebrate the promise of new talent and innovation among today's engineering students and will honor the lifetime achievement of a top industry veteran whose contributions have had a demonstrable impact on technological, business and cultural advancements in the world.
