Maisons-Laffitte, France, May 29, 2022 – SiPearl, the European company that designs high-performance, low-power microprocessors for exascale computing, and NVIDIA have announced a collaboration to jointly offer a joint offering that combines SiPearl HPC microprocessors with NVIDIA acceleration for computing and networking coiled.
SiPearl, a company that designs high-performance, low-power microprocessors for European exascale supercomputers, has entered into a strategic collaboration agreement with NVIDIA for joint technology and business developments with the goal of bringing the two companies’ suite of hardware and software solutions together.
NVIDIA and SiPearl will develop an agent platform for transport activities and SVE workload analysis that combines the strengths of SiPearl CPU (such as HBM memory) and NVIDIA GPUs (including massive parallelism and throughput). The collaboration will include joint efforts with third-party European research institutions on items such as SoC and NoC simulation capabilities in open source and research-oriented modeling tools.
On the software side, the two companies will accelerate the development and growth of the Arm HPC ecosystem working closely with several European Centers of Excellence. On the hardware side, SiPearl and NVIDIA will work together to ensure that NVIDIA’s portfolio of Accelerated Computing and Networking continues to work seamlessly with SiPearl ‘Rhea’ and future CPUs.
This collaboration with NVIDIA will expand the ecosystem of acceleration solutions offered jointly with SiPearl HPC microprocessors. With this partnership, SiPearl is expanding its portfolio of acceleration solutions from partners. The goal is to provide the best combinations to meet the application needs of the European HPC community across the strategic areas of academia, artificial intelligence, health, climate, energy, engineering, geology, and government.
“We are excited about this collaboration between SiPearl and NVIDIA. It holds great potential for the European supercomputing space, the ARM ecosystem and accelerated computing, says Dr. Thomas Lippert, Head of the Jülich Center for Supercomputing.
“As the leading European HPC and AI company, we are pleased to see SiPearl collaborate with NVIDIA to bring enhanced ARM-based computing and AI solutions, as well as future exascale designs, to the local HPC ecosystem,” says Emmanuel Le Roux. Senior Global Vice President, Head of HPC AI & Quantum, Atos.
“We welcome this collaboration with HPC’s premier global GPU provider, NVIDIA. This partnership will greatly enrich our joint offering of HPC microprocessors with partner acceleration solutions, providing an option for end users of supercomputers in Europe,” says Philip Naughton, CEO and founder of SiPearl.
“HPC research has the potential to transform society with useful discoveries,” says Mark Hamilton, NVIDIA Vice President of Solutions Engineering and Engineering. “NVIDIA is collaborating with SiPearl, the leading innovator in Arm-based CPUs, to integrate NVIDIA’s accelerated computing and provide HPC researchers with the superior performance that next-generation applications require to support these discoveries.”
Upcoming SiPearl Events:
ISC High Performance Hamburg (Germany) – 29 May – 2 June 2022 – Booth B212
Teratec Forum at Ecole Polytechnique, Palaiseau (France) – 14-15 June 2022 – Booth 38.
SiPearl designs high-performance, low-power microprocessors for European supercomputers. This new generation of microprocessors will enable Europe to establish its technological supremacy in strategic high-performance computing (HPC) markets such as artificial intelligence, medical research or climate modelling.
The company works in close collaboration with 27 of its European Processor Initiative (EPI) alliance partners – leading names from the scientific community, supercomputing centers and industry – who are its stakeholders, customers and future users.
SiPearl employs 104 people in France (Maisons-Laffitte, Grenoble, Massy and Sophia Antipolis), Germany (Duisburg) and Spain (Barcelona).
