Hello everyone.

This will be highly technical. I like to see if it is possible to design integrated CPU+TPU, like CTPU,
CPU includes (wikipedia):
  1. datapaths (such as ALUs and pipelines)
  2. control unit: logic which controls the datapaths
  3. Memory components such as register files, caches
  4. Clock circuitry such as clock drivers, PLLs, clock distribution networks
  5. Pad transceiver circuitry
  6. Logic gate cell library which is used to implement the logic
TPU includes:
  1. Unify buffer
  2. Matrix Multiply unit
  3. Accumulators - sharing wtih ALU
Frequency 2Ghz minimum, at least 32MB cache and L2/L3 cache with 1.5V max voltage
both communicate with a integrated bus

Any comments are appreciated.

Eliminating the TPU, just use CPU with some TPU elements for basic TPU processing and offload to any TPU. How about that?

Cache is clearly not that Important though. Been Plenty of examples with Half or Less and Performed just as good or better.
