NEUCHIPS, a San Jose, CA-based AI ASIC platform for deep learning recommendations, announced that it raised $20 million in Series B2 funding.
The round includes strategic investors Wistron, JAFCO Asia, Powerchip Group, and new investor Raydium Semiconductor Corporation.
The funding will enable them to accelerate the delivery of their 7nm RecAccel™ inference platform to cloud service providers.
"We are excited to have Raydium join as a new investor," said Youn-Long Lin, Chairman, and CEO of NEUCHIPS. "I am also pleased that our existing investors, who represent leaders in the worldwide semiconductor and cloud ecosystems, continue to support our growth plans."
NEUCHIPS' first product, RecAccel™ N3000, was explicitly designed for DLRM and will be ready to sample later this year with easy-to-use software and leading-edge performance. NEUCHIPS will present and participate in the OCP Global Summit on October 18-20 in San Jose.
