Thu 5 Oct 2023

Tenstorrent, a company that sells AI processors and licenses AI and RISC-V IP, has selected Samsung Foundry to bring its next generation of AI chiplets to market.

Tenstorrent builds powerful RISC-V CPU and AI acceleration chiplets, aiming to push the boundaries of compute in multiple industries such as data centre, automotive, and robotics.

These chiplets are designed to deliver scalable power from milliwatts to megawatts, catering to a wide range of applications from edge devices to data centres.

To ensure the highest quality and cutting-edge manufacturing capabilities for its chiplet, Tenstorrent has selected Samsung’s Foundry Design Service team.

The chiplets will be manufactured using Samsung’s SF4X process, which boasts a 4nm architecture.

“Tenstorrent’s focus is on developing high performance compute and delivering these solutions to customers around the world,” said Jim Keller, CEO of Tenstorrent.

Samsung Electronics, headquartered in South Korea, has a new fab under construction in Taylor, Texas, neighboring its first US semiconductor manufacturing facility in Austin.

“Samsung Foundry is expanding in the US, and we are committed to serving our customers with the best available semiconductor technology,” said Marco Chisari, Head of Samsung’s US Foundry business.
