We’re committed to delivering outstanding energy efficiency,
performance and scalability.

Our solutions are built on RISC-V, the open instruction set
standard, using an innovative low-power approach which enables us to deliver
an exceptional value proposition for key AI inference applications.

Driven by innovation.

Exceptional energy efficiency for a
full range of key AI workloads.

Power consumption continues to be the most critical problem facing high-performance computing today.
To address this challenge we employ an array of over a thousand low-power ET-MinionTM cores, delivering energy efficiency with high integer and floating-point throughput, including tensor and vector acceleration optimized for ML / DL workloads.

RISC-V is the future of computing innovation.

Esperanto Technologies leverages RISC-V, a free and open ISA enabling a new era of processor innovation through open standards. As a founding member of RISC-V International, Esperanto is at the forefront of the RISC-V revolution, using the instruction set architecture to develop the world’s most efficient parallelized AI accelerators. Our high-performance out-of-order processor cores can boot Linux in self-hosted mode while our energy-efficient multithreaded in-order processor cores form a very powerful compute fabric to accelerate AI and Non-AI workloads. Our software stack supports standard AI frameworks such as GLOW and TVM and leverages the rich RISC-V software ecosystem.

Solutions designed to scale from cloudto edge AI workloads.

The Esperanto RISC-V architecture can scale to address different applications, different levels of performance, different power profiles, and varying system form factors – while delivering optimal energy efficiency for each target application. With over a thousand high-performance, energy-efficient 64-bit RISC-V cores on our first chip, the ET-SoC-1, Esperanto can deliver TeraFlops of scalable computing performance.

The world’s highest performanceRISC-V commercial chip.

The ET-SoC-1 inference chip is designed to be the world’s highest performance RISC-V commercial chip, with over a thousand RISC-V processors on a single TSMC 7nm chip delivering a massively parallel, flexible architecture that combines exceptional performance and ultra-low power consumption. ET-SoC-1 is now available for evaluation by qualified customers through our Esperanto Access Program.

In quotes.

“Esperanto has taken the opposite approach to competitors’ giant power-hungry chip accelerators, offering a lower-power chip that can be used in multiples.”

SALLY WARD-FOXTON, EETIMES

“All in all, Esperanto is moving in the right direction for completing the RISC-V ecosystem. The lower cost and growing selection of RISC-V solutions, coupled with a rapidly growing software ecosystem, represent a real and viable alternative to ARM.”

DAVID SCHOR, WIKICHIP FUZE

“I had the chance to watch a demo of the platform and came away quite impressed with the performance and power efficiency of the RISC-V based platform. I was also pleased to see that the Esperanto device is not a one-trick pony, as the team demonstrated Resnet50, DLRM, and the Transformer network underlying BERT.”

KARL FREUND, FORBES

“Our data science team was very impressed with the initial evaluation of Esperanto’s AI acceleration solution. It was fast, performant and overall easy to use. In addition, the SoC demonstrated near-linear performance scaling across different configurations of AI compute clusters. This is a capability that is quite unique, and one we have yet to see consistently delivered by established companies offering alternative solutions to Esperanto.”

DR. PATRICK BANGERT, VP OF AI, SAMSUNG SDS

“Yes, I’ve seen the RISC-V light. Chief protagonist in my conversion was the high priest of microprocessor design himself, Dave Ditzel.”

JIM TURLEY, EE JOURNAL

“The motivation for Esperanto is that there is no RISC-V alternative to high end ARM processors. Without that, it is hard for many companies to make an architectural switch…”

PAUL MCLELLAN, BREAKFAST BYTES BLOG, CADENCE

“Intel Foundry Services is excited to add Esperanto’s massively-parallel AI accelerators to the IFS ecosystem. The combination of Esperanto’s low-power design techniques and IFS advanced silicon and packaging technologies should enable thousands of Esperanto’s RISC-V based processors to operate in a single package with remarkably low power.”

BOB BRENNAN, VP, GM, IFS CUSTOMER SOLUTIONS ENGINEERING

“Esperanto has achieved an industry first by demonstrating its massively parallel RISC-V silicon running a variety of real-world AI workloads. It was exciting for me to see the company put the chip through its paces across a variety of scenarios including different models, data types, batch sizes and compute cluster combinations – all showing competitive results. This is another positive step forward for the RISC-V industry in the AI space as this new market continues to grow even faster than we had previously forecasted.”
