Andy Mei, CEO of Stream Computing, added, “Empowering Vybium to develop their silicon by innovating on our NPU IP accelerates the development of European AI/ML accelerators to compete with Nvidia. This shared technology base supports broader, open-source software enablement, creating a true win-win.”

Vybium’s initial product line will focus on AI/ML accelerator cards, aiming to compete with Nvidia’s A100 family. Subsequent designs will integrate RISC-V general-purpose compute with AI/ML for embedded, industrial, and edge applications, following the initial focus on datacenter, cloud, and enterprise AI/ML acceleration.

Positioned as a formidable alternative to industry leaders, Vybium leverages VRULL’s software expertise and Stream Computing’s advanced NPU IP. This strategic partnership enables Vybium to deliver cutting-edge RISC-V AI/ML technologies with superior performance. As Vybium advances, it will play a critical role in driving European semiconductor innovation, enhancing digital independence, and providing robust solutions for industrial and enterprise applications across Europe and beyond.
