AMD has acquired French FPGA compiler expert Mipsology for an undisclosed sum.

The Mipsology software team will join the AMD AI Group to help further accelerate our customer engagements and expand AI software development capabilities. Specifically, the team will help develop AMD’s full AI software stack, expanding its ecosystem of software tools, libraries and models to pave the way for streamlined deployment of AI models running on AMD hardware.

Founded in 2015 in Palaiseau, France, by FPGA experts from emulator firm EVE, Mipsology develops FPGA compilation technology, enabling more than 100% utilisation of FPGA fabric, and moved into AI in 2020. Its Zebra AI software supports industry frameworks including TensorFlow, PyTorch, and ONNX Runtime and will help accelerate FPGAs running AI workloads. The integration also supports the AMD Unified AI (UAI) Software Stack, which delivers a cohesive AI training and inference interface across edge, endpoint and cloud.

“I am pleased to welcome the talented team from Mipsology, a leader in AI software and long-standing AMD partner based in Palaiseau, France, to the AMD family,” said Vamsi Boppana is Senior Vice President of the AMD AI Group

“AI is our top strategic priority and a significant driver of incremental silicon demand over the coming decade. By welcoming the skilled Mipsology team to AMD, we will continue to strengthen our software capabilities to enable customers around the world to tap into the vast potential of pervasive AI,” said Boppana.;
