Micron’s Automata Exploits Parallelism to Solve Big Data Problems


EETimes: DENVER — Micron unveiled what it claims is a fundamentally different new processor architecture at Supercomputing 2013 that speeds up the search and analysis of complex and unstructured data streams. The sneak peak of its Automata Processor (AP) architecture was accompanied by the establishment of a Center for Automata Computing at the University of Virginia.

In an interview from the conference floor via telephone, Micron’s director of Automata Processor technology development Paul Dlugosch told EE Times that Automata is different than conventional CPUs in that its computing fabric is made up of tens of thousands to millions of processing elements that are interconnected. Its design is based on an adaptation of memory array architecture, exploiting the inherent bit-parallelism of traditional SDRAM.
