        Tachyum's Prodigy emulator achieves first boot, runs Linux and says 'hello, world'

        “This is one of the most critical points in proving a mature design and verification of a high-end processor. The design includes CPU cores, caches, memories, TLBs, and a console, and the simulation uses exceptions, interrupts, page-walking, and both user- and kernel-mode execution. It’s not just a hardware and software design success, but also a key verification milestone.”

        Customer Spotlight: Tachyum’s Universal Processor for Hyperscale Data Centers

        Social media posts and video streaming. E-commerce transactions and e-mail communications. Online gaming and business applications. These are just a few examples of everyday activities that rely on data centers. As data center usage continues to skyrocket to support increased internet traffic, their impact on the planet’s energy usage will need to be mitigated before it all hits a wall. What’s more, there’s opportunity to make better use of existing data center resources, diverting otherwise idle processing capacity toward various practical pursuits.

        Tachyum, with offices in the U.S. and Slovakia, has a solution for this performance plateau: Prodigy, the world’s first universal processor for servers, artificial intelligence (AI), and high-performance computing (HPC).

        Prodigy’s intense computing muscle can help AI use cases in particular. Convolutional neural networks, deep learning AI, symbolic AI, general AI, and bio AI are the disciplines that have emerged in recent years, each with its own set of algorithms and computing criteria. Human brain modeling, meanwhile, is in high demand by R&D ventures due to its promise of extracting information from large data sets. The Tachyum Universal Processor Platform is suitable for projects like the real-time Human Brain Project, which needs more than 1019 Flops (10,000,000,000,000,000,000 floating-point operations per second – 10 exaflops), as well as supplying computing resources for science and engineering solutions that today’s systems cannot offer.
