European Processor Initiative spins off SiPearl to commercialize the EPI microprocessor

Focus on EuropeSiPearl is the name of a company that is bringing the European Processor Initiative (EPI) consortium's technology to market. EPI is designing the high-performance, low-power microprocessor for the European exascale supercomputer funded by EuroHPC. This new generation of microprocessors should help ensure Europe's technological sovereignty on the strategic markets for high performance computing (HPC), artificial intelligence and connected mobility. SiPearl will be managed by Philippe Notton who is also General Manager of EPI. Read further...
