LAS VEGAS, May 5, 2022 – Tachyum™ today announced new IP suppliers who have provided the company with critical IP components needed to bring Prodigy™ to commercial markets in 2022. They include Alphawave and Rambus IP.
Alphawave is a global leader in high-speed connectivity for the world’s technology infrastructure. Its IP solutions meet the needs of global tier-one customers in data centers, compute, networking, AI, 5G, autonomous vehicles and storage. Tachyum will leverage its AlphaCORE Long-Reach (LR) Multi-Standard-Serdes (MSS) IP, a high-performance, low-power, DSP-based PHY with speeds up to 112Gbps. Alphawave also delivers complete Ethernet and PCIe IP subsystems.
Rambus is a premier chip and Silicon Intellectual Property (SIP) provider specializing in high-speed interconnects supporting multi-gigabit rates (2.5G, 5G, 8G, 16G, 25G, 32G, 64G), and protocols such as PCI Express® (PCIe®), CXL™ and CCIX™. With industry-proven solutions that are both highly configurable and flexible, Tachyum expects its long-term partnership with Rambus to scale to PCIe 6.0 and beyond.
“It’s been said that you are often judged by the company that you keep so it is vitally important that we only surround ourselves with the best in order to be the best,” said Dr. Radoslav Danilak, founder and CEO of Tachyum. “We work with partners like Alphawave and Rambus because of their industry-proven solutions, smooth IP integration and the ability to execute on schedule and target in a much shorter time. By leveraging their IP as part of our Prodigy solution, we will be able to deliver the world’s first universal processor to market faster so that we can best address the growing needs of AI, HPC and hyperscale data centers.”
Tachyum’s Prodigy processor can run HPC applications, convolutional AI, explainable AI, general AI, bio AI, and spiking neural networks, plus normal data center workloads, on a single homogeneous processor platform, using existing standard programming models. Without Prodigy, hyperscale data centers must use a combination of disparate CPU, GPU and TPU hardware, for these different workloads, creating inefficiency, expense, and the complexity of separate supply and maintenance infrastructures. Using specific hardware dedicated to each type of workload (e.g. data center, AI, HPC), results in underutilization of hardware resources, and more challenging programming, support, and maintenance. Prodigy’s ability to seamlessly switch among these various workloads dramatically changes the competitive landscape and the economics of data centers.
Tachyum is transforming AI, HPC, public and private cloud data center markets with Prodigy, the world’s first Universal Processor that delivers industry-leading performance, cost, and power efficiency for both specialty and general-purpose computing. When Prodigy processors are provisioned in a hyperscale data center, they enable all AI, HPC, and general-purpose applications to run on one hardware infrastructure, saving companies billions of dollars per year. A fully functional Prodigy emulation system is currently available to select customers and partners for early testing and software development. With data centers currently consuming over 3% of the planet’s electricity, predicted to be 10% by 2025, the ultra-low power Prodigy Universal Processor is critical, if we want to continue doubling worldwide data center capacity every four years. Tachyum, Co-founded by Dr. Radoslav Danilak with its flagship product Prodigy, is marching towards tape out and chip sampling in 2022, with software emulations and an FPGA-based emulator running native Linux available to early adopters. The company is building the world’s fastest 64 AI exaflops supercomputer in 2022 in the EU with Prodigy chips. Tachyum has offices in the United States and Slovakia.
