Tenstorrent is continuing its commitment to India’s Digital India RISC-V Program with its investment in and partnership with Bodhi Computing.
Bodhi Computing builds and sells server-grade systems based on Tenstorrent AI and RISC-V technologies. Target markets include India’s data centers, enterprise, HPC, telecom, and automotive markets. These India markets are expecting huge growth in the coming years and represent an enormous opportunity for Bodhi Computing and Tenstorrent. Bodhi Computing will also opportunistically expand into global markets as strategic opportunities arise. Bodhi Computing is led by co-founders Sambit Sahu and Ragu Barathalwar, who are both industry veterans with a strong history of technical leadership.
“When I learned that the India’s Ministry of Electronics and IT started the Digital India RISC-V program to launch India’s first indigenous chipset by 2024, I knew that I wanted Tenstorrent to help,” said Jim Keller, CEO of Tenstorrent. “Sambit and I have worked together for years, and he is the perfect person to lead Bodhi Computing as they build server-grade systems targeting key markets of growth in India.”
As part of this investment and partnership, the two companies will collaborate to pioneer the development of software and systems for RISC-V and AI solutions, and play a significant role in the open source ecosystem development in the process. Keller will join Bodhi Computing’s Board of Directors.
“Tenstorrent is an amazing company with best-in-class technologies in terms of PPA, scalability, expandability, TCO efficiency, and time-to-market efficiency in both AI/ML and RISC-V,” said Sahu, CEO of Bodhi Computing. “Bringing great AI/ML and RISC-V technologies in the same package is going to be a key propeller for the 14 trillion dollar AI revolution that is being talked about. Tenstorrent has assembled an outstanding team, bringing in the who’s who of the technology world together. It is an honor and privilege to be working so closely with such an outstanding team with some very cool technologies.”
