SiPearl, the company in charge of designing a high-performance, low-power microprocessor for the European exascale supercomputer, has signed a licensing agreement with semiconductor IP provider Arm to use the Arm Neoverse platform, codenamed “Zeus”.

“Arm Neoverse platforms are committed to enable the infrastructure for a world of a trillion connected devices, providing a foundation for our ecosystem to build products spanning edge to cloud and beyond to high performance computing,” said Chris Bergey, SVP and GM, Infrastructure Line of Business, Arm. “SiPearl’s use of the next-generation ‘Zeus’ platform for a power-efficient, yet high-performing solution aligns perfectly with the Neoverse design principles and we look forward to collaborating with SiPearl on their first-generation solutions.”

“We would like to thank the teams from Arm for the confidence and trust that they have shown in us with this major license. It will enable us to gain nearly 10 years of development and position us as a major player from the outset. Thanks to the Arm Neoverse “Zeus” platform and the intellectual property components developed by our partners from the European Processor Initiative consortium, our first generation of microprocessors will combine supercomputing power with outstanding energy efficiency and backdoor-free security. This will ensure that they are effectively positioned to support European supercomputers with their transition to exascale”, concluded Philippe Notton, SiPearl’s CEO and founder.
