Bengaluru, April 11, 2023: Canada-headquartered computing company Tenstorrent has partnered with Bodhi Computing who will build and sell server-grade systems based on Tenstorrent AI and RISC-V technologies.
The two companies will collaborate to pioneer the development of software and systems for RISC-V and AI solutions and play a significant role in the open-source ecosystem development in the process.
"When I learned that the India's Ministry of Electronics and IT started the Digital India RISC-V program to launch India's first indigenous chipset by 2024, I knew that I wanted Tenstorrent to help” said Jim Keller, CEO of Tenstorrent. “Sambit and I have worked together for years, and he is the perfect person to lead Bodhi Computing as they build server-grade systems targeting key markets of growth in India."
Bodhi Computing will target India’s data centers, enterprise, HPC, telecom, and automotive markets. These India markets are expecting huge growth in the coming years and represent an enormous opportunity for Bodhi Computing and Tenstorrent. Bodhi Computing will also opportunistically expand into global markets as strategic opportunities arise. Bodhi Computing will be led co-founders Sambit Sahu and Ragu Barathalwar, who are both industry veterans with a strong history of technical leadership.
“Tenstorrent is an amazing company with best-in-class technologies in terms of PPA, scalability, expandability, TCO efficiency, and time-to-market efficiency in both AI/ML and RISC-V,” said Sambit Sahu, CEO of Bodhi Computing. “Bringing great AI/ML and RISC-V technologies in the same package is going to be a key propeller for the 14 trillion dollar AI revolution that is being talked about. Tenstorrent has assembled an outstanding team, bringing in the who’s who of the technology world together. It is an honor and privilege to be working so closely with such an outstanding team with some very cool technologies.”
“RISC-V is becoming a global movement with New India as a leading player. Young Indians are going to shape the future of Semicon design with Bangalore becoming a capital of RISC-V innovation,” said Rajeev Chandrasekhar, Union Minister of State for Electronics and Information Technology addressing the India RISC-V Nerds Talking to Nerds Conference, organised by Tenstorrent
