Tachyum Closes Milestone Year for Development of Prodigy Universal Processor

Chip FPGA prototypes and demonstrations among highlights

Tachyum celebrates another year of milestones for the company and its Prodigy Universal Processor development, including several demonstrations, design achievements, and other proof-of-product successes. Its progress in 2020 has positioned Prodigy for volume manufacturing and worldwide commercial distribution in 2021.

Its most significant accomplishment on the path to market-readiness was the recent release of a fully functional FPGA chip prototype, the last step before tape-out when final design specs are submitted for fabrication. Tachyum will have 98 percent of the complete Prodigy chip layout, the verified detailed physical design of the silicon area.

Throughout the year Tachyum proved Prodigy’s capabilities in demonstrations such as software emulation testing across x86, ARM and RISC-V binary environments, running a web server application on Prodigy using a mix of x86 and its native code, and validating critical tools like Apache. To further show Prodigy users can deploy a broad spectrum of applications out of the box, Tachyum demonstrated its AI software stack in August, resulting in speeds over 2X faster than other solutions. Testing and verification is ongoing, with longer and longer random tests. Achieved whole path roundtrip from I$/D$ miss, L2$ miss, directory, mesh, DRAM controller, DDR5 DIMMS, back to core with correct data.

Along with its technical milestones, Tachyum expanded its leadership with the addition of Melvin Cordova as advisory board member of its newly created Tachyum Government Corporation, created to service the unique needs of defense and intelligence customers; Stephen Dilbeck as senior director, system on chip; and Lt. Gen. (Ret.) Richard Zahner as a member of Tachyum’s Advisory Board. Key promotions included Elena Zokhidova, elevated to VP of finance, and Krishna Thatipelli to senior director of hardware design engineering.

The company was welcomed into a number of industry associations to advance the state of technical collaboration and best practices: the Open Compute Project, two JEDEC committees developing standards for solid state memories and DRAM modules, the UEFI Forum, the OpenBMC Project, and Trusted Computing Group.
