HYDERABAD: Ceramorphic Inc announced here on Tuesday, that it has successfully taped out its first 5nm chip with its partner 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.
Founder and CEO of Ceremorphic Venkat Mattela said “Ceremorphic is the first company to tape out an AI supercomputing chip in the advanced 5nm process node, representing not only a significant accomplishment for our company, but also for the India semiconductor industry.”
Dr. Venkat added that the talent pool, expertise and resulting innovation coming from India had once again proven to be world-class and the design achievement positioned Ceremorphic for its next phase of growth and expansion.
Congratulating the Ceremorphic team on their achievement, Professor of Electrical Engineering and of Computer Science Subhasish Mitra said “with this announcement, the AI industry just got one step closer to finally addressing today’s critical challenges through reliable performance computing.”
Ceremorphic’s development center in India currently employs more than 150 hardware and software engineers with plans to grow to 250 by 2023. Earlier this year, the company announced a $50 million Series A round and plans to innovate the AI supercomputing space with an energy efficient, high performance chip architecture.
