The Barcelona Supercomputing Center (BSC) has been selected as coordinator of three research projects of the call launched by the EuroHPC Joint Undertaking to promote the research and development of the new supercomputers of the future. In its first call, EuroHPC has selected 20 projects, of which the BSC coordinates three and participates in another six. The projects coordinated by BSC have a global budget of 19.6 million euros, 50% funded by EuroHPC JU and the other 50% by the partner’s national governments.
BSC leads eProcessor, (European, extendable, energy-efficient, energetic, embedded, extensible, Processor Ecosystem) which aims to build a new open source out-of-order (OOO) processor. The objective is to deliver the first completely open source European full stack ecosystem based on a new RISC-V CPU. eProcessor will be extendable (open source), energy efficient (low power), extreme-scale (high performance), suitable for uses in HPC and embedded applications, and extensible (easy to add on-chip and/or off-chip components).
