Ceremorphic has successfully taped out its first 5nm chip with its partner TSMC.
Ceremorphic Inc. has successfully taped out its first 5nm chip with its partner Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co. Ltd (TSMC). As the only AI supercomputing chip to solve the high-performance computing needs in reliability, security and power consumption at scale, the Ceremorphic solution delivers the performance required for next-generation applications such as AI model training, HPC, drug discovery and metaverse processing.
“Ceremorphic is the first company to tape out an AI supercomputing chip in the advanced 5nm process node, which represents a significant accomplishment for our company,” said Dr. Venkat Mattela, Founder and CEO of Ceremorphic. “Our hardware and software engineering teams have once again proven to be world-class and this design achievement positions us well for our next phase of growth and expansion.”
“With this announcement, the AI industry just got one step closer to finally addressing today’s critical challenges through reliable performance computing,” said Subhasish Mitra, Professor of Electrical Engineering and of Computer Science at Stanford University. “Congratulations to the entire Ceremorphic team for achieving this significant milestone and bringing a new level of innovation to the AI supercomputing community.”
The Ceremorphic chip contains reliable analog and digital circuits, very high speed (64Gbit, PCIe 6.0) and energy efficient connectivity circuits for system level and inter-node communications, multi-thread reliable processor, and low power circuits for SoC silicon. This Hierarchical Learning Processor (HLP) deploys the right processing system for optimal power performance operation. Key features of the chip include patented multi-thread processing macro-architecture, ThreadArch based RISC–V processor for proxy processing (1GHz); custom designed X16 PCIe 6.0 / CXL 3.0 connectivity interface; and reliability system components realized in advanced microarchitectures.
