Functional Description: Simty is a massively multi-threaded processor core that dynamically assembles SIMD instructions from scalar multi-thread code. It runs the RISC-V (RV32-I) instruction set. Unlike existing SIMD or SIMT processors like GPUs, Simty takes binaries compiled for general-purpose processors without any instruction set extension or compiler changes. Simty is described in synthesizable VHDL.
