Since its operational launch in January 2020, the company has grown to a headcount of 67 in France, Germany and Spain. With experts and executives from Atos, Intel, Marvell, MediaTek and STMicroelectronics, SiPearl has built a strong industrial and scientific ecosystem and contracted with ARM and other top-tier companies.

The European Commission’s EIC programme provides grants for innovation but can also take an equity stake in a company as well.

“We are thrilled to have been selected by the EIC Accelerator program which aims to bring Europe to the forefront of innovation and new technologies. This funding will help us to create sustainable economic and strategic value for Europe: economic value with 1,000 employees by 2025, and strategic value with a roadmap of high-performance and power-efficient microprocessors to restore Europe’s lead in supercomputing,” said Philippe Notton, CEO and founder of SiPearl.

The company is developing a European chip for the next generation of exascale supercomputers that can handle over 1000PetaFLOPS of performance. It is working on a chip called Rhea with 64 of the latest ARM Neoverse V1 cores for the European Processor Initiative (EPI) project along with 27 partner companies.

SiPearl is also a member of the Mont-Blanc 2020 consortium to equip Europe with a dedicated modular and energy-efficient high performance computing microprocessor, and is a member of the PlayFrance.Digital collective for Europe to lead the field for digital technology.
