Indiana Patent of the Month – October 2022

Processors are the heart of central processing units (CPU), providing the power needed to run algorithms. Unfortunately, traditional processors are general purpose and not configurable in any practical way that allows for performance enhancements. ICAT, LLC (now known as Micro Turing) has developed and patented a high throughput processor that eliminates nearly all overhead from program execution controls to improve performance.

Micro Turing is set on developing solutions that can replace GPU and FPGA processors. Through extensive R&D, they have worked towards solutions that combine flexibility and power efficiency in the microprocessor architecture.

Their solution utilizes application specific integrated circuits (ASICs) which reduce overhead by hard wiring specific functions into the hardware. This combination is achieved using an algorithmic matching pipelined compiler and a reusable algorithmic pipelined core. The reusable core is reprogrammable, allowing for configuration to specific user needs. 

This is crucial to expand the capabilities of processors. The solution reduces overhead while maintaining the flexibility of processing a vast range of algorithms and using higher level programming languages. This architecture is flexible, highly scalable and ready to transform products in any industry.

Are you developing new technology for an existing application? Did you know your development work could be eligible for the R&D Tax Credit and you can receive up to 14% back on your expenses? Even if your development isn’t successful your work may still qualify for R&D credits (i.e. you don’t need to have a patent to qualify). To find out more, please contact a Swanson Reed R&D Specialist today or check out our free online eligibility test.
