By joining Arm Total Design and leveraging Arm Neoverse Compute Subsystems (CSS), Kalray will be better placed to help companies looking to integrate its AI and data acceleration technology and will help Arm ecosystem partners commercialise AI-based solutions much faster and at a significantly lower cost.

Arm Total Design was established to help accelerate and simplify the delivery of custom silicon based on Arm Neoverse CSS and has grown to more than 20 partners, including the top three leading foundries, ASIC design houses, IP vendors, EDA tool providers, and firmware developers who are driving leading-edge innovation.

Kalray is already working to integrate Arm Coherent Mesh Network (CMN) technology to help connect Kalray's advanced AI and data processing acceleration solution to Arm Neoverse CSS.

As a member of the Arm Total Design ecosystem, Kalray will now be able to move swiftly with the latest Arm technologies and make it easier to access its advanced AI and data processing capabilities by adopters of Arm Neoverse technology.

“The proliferation of AI has led to an unprecedented demand for more compute power and flexibility, which is a driving force behind the momentum of Arm Neoverse in the data centre and beyond,” said Eddie Ramirez, vice president of go-to-market, Infrastructure Line of Business, Arm. “Kalray is bringing its expertise in AI acceleration and efficient data processing to the Arm Total Design ecosystem, enabling partners to more easily integrate these capabilities as they build custom silicon solutions to maximise performance and efficiency.”

“AI workloads are exerting profound changes in the semiconductor industry with their insatiable demand for data processing,” explained Eric Baissus, Kalray CEO. “We look forward to helping more technology players to use the AI and data acceleration capabilities of Kalray's DPU technology so they can deliver innovative AI processing solutions across the industry.”
