    1. LAS VEGAS, June 18, 2024 – Tachyum® today announced that it will begin upstreaming code to the open-source community to encourage expanded evaluation opportunities with the Prodigy platform. As part of the testing process, Tachyum will donate computing resources to the OSS community for expanded evaluation opportunities with the Prodigy® platform. In preparing to upstream to open-source software (OSS), Tachyum has identified and solved many existing issues to improve public utilization and allow collaboration across the community.

    2. LAS VEGAS, June 11, 2024 – Tachyum® today announced that it enabled an Instruction Profiling Unit (IPU), a low overhead way to collect the profile of non-instrumented executed code, on its Prodigy® Universal Processor. IPU is used by hyperscalers to profile applications in production execution and recompile code to gain better performance. This latest enhancement is part of the company’s focus on refining and performance optimization of the Tachyum Software Distribution Package upon its beta release.

    3. LAS VEGAS, June 4, 2024 –Tachyum® today announced that it has moved to 64KB page size as the default of its Prodigy® software distribution, a completely integrated software stack and package, which is now available to early adopters and customers as a pre-installed image as part of the beta phase of testing. Tachyum completed testing with 4KB pages and 4KB support is now viewed as legacy. The company will instead focus on 64KB pages with 4KB pages only serving as a backup solution for those who have a special need.

    1. LAS VEGAS, May 28, 2024 – Tachyum® today announced that it has successfully integrated the BF16 data type into its Prodigy® compiler and software distribution, which is now available to early adopters and customers as a pre-installed image as part of beta testing. BF16, or bfloat16, is a shortened floating point data type based on the IEEE 32-bit single-precision floating point data type (f32). It is used to accelerate machine learning by reducing storage requirements and increasing the calculation speed of ML algorithms.

    3. LAS VEGAS, May 15, 2024 –Tachyum® today announced that it has advanced the Unified Extensible Firmware Interface (UEFI) to beta and has added RAID 1 capabilities. These latest improvements are a further indication that Tachyum’s Prodigy® hardware continues to mature through its development stages prior to its public release. UEFI replaces the traditional BIOS as a next-generation interface between the operating system and platform firmware. It is used during startup to initialize the hardware and load the OS.

    4. LAS VEGAS, May 7, 2024 –Tachyum® today announced that it has added a watchdog timer to its Prodigy® FPGA emulation system to help detect and recovery from device or system malfunction. The mechanism facilitates automatic correction of temporary hardware faults and prevents errant or malevolent software from disrupting system operations. Available as both a hardware and virtualized time, Prodigy’s watchdog is part of a self-healing infrastructure within datacenters. It allows the automatic recovery of servers that hang without human intervention.
