About SiPearl…

Founded in 2019 by Philippe Notton and financed by the European Union, SiPearl embodies Europe’s dream of mastering the technological heart of its supercomputers: the microprocessor.

SiPearl is building Rhea, the world’s first energy-efficient #HPC-dedicated microprocessor designed to work with any third-party accelerator (#GPU, #AI, #quantum). It will help Europe solving major challenges in medical research🧬, artificial intelligence, security 🛡️, energy management and climate 🌱while reducing its environmental footprint.

Since our creation in 2019, we host 170 collaborators in 6 offices: France (Maisons-Laffitte, Massy, Grenoble, Sophia Antipolis), Germany (Duisburg), Spain (Barcelona).

After a successful series A in 2023 (90M €), SiPearl has recently won an emblematic contract to equip Europe’s first exascale supercomputer, JUPITER, who will be operated by the EuroHPC’s center of research from Jülich (Germany). And as the dream of a European machine, crossing the 1 billion billion mark calculations per second thanks to an European microprocessor, is becoming reality, SiPearl is willing to hire 150 engineers by the end of 2024 !
