SiPearl, the company that is designing the high-performance, low-power microprocessor for the European exascale supercomputer, has signed a licensing agreement with Arm, in which SiPearl will use the Arm Neoverse platform, codenamed “Zeus”.
Taking advantage of the Arm “Zeus” platform, including Arm’s POP IP, on advanced FinFET technology, enables SiPearl to accelerate its design and ensure reliability for its first generation of microprocessors set for launch in 2022.
SiPearl will be moving forward with the joint project of the 27 academic and industrial members of the European Processor Initiative (EPI), the consortium selected by the European Union to support the development of the European microprocessor. Based on a roadmap that is closely aligned with the European Union’s goals, SiPearl and its solutions will help drive the development of the European market for high performance computing (HPC), as well as its applications such as artificial intelligence and connected mobility.
The European Processor Initiative (EPI) project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme.
