Thirty semiconductor and electronics companies in Europe that felt they were in crisis formed an alliance called EPI (European Processor Initiative) to develop their own CPUs and GPUs.November 07, 2022
The Catalan semiconductor industry is also under intense development. Europe is doing more to promote the semiconductor field due to the perception that the United States, Korea and Taiwan are leaving it behind in terms of semiconductor factories and design. To overcome this situation, European countries, including Spain, are receiving EU aid under the "EPI Project," which supports semiconductor design companies.February 08, 2022
Move comes ahead of draft law to turn continent into a center of semiconductor expertise
Additional €43bn in the pipeline, but it's still chickenfeed, say criticsDecember 31, 2021
L'European Processor Initiative, qui réunit 28 acteurs technologiques de l'UE pour concevoir un processeur HPC européen, a présenté ses 1ers résultats. Outre les spécifications architecturales du Rhea, 1ère génération du processeur universel de l'EPI, le projet a réalisé une preuve de concept d'un accélérateur et un microcontrôleur haute performance embarqué pour les applications de la filière automobile.December 24, 2021

The EPI was founded by the European Union with the aim of giving the different countries of the old continent total independence of high-performance computing technology from the United States and the great Asian powers. The geopolitical objective is nothing more than to have technological neutrality in a market that is moving to form two large blocks that in the end will end up giving companies to choose between one block or another.September 21, 2021
Ya tenemos un chip europeo que ha mostrado en pantalla el célebre "Hello World". Se trata de EPAC (European Processor ACcelerator), un chip con arquitectura RISC-V que ha pasado las primeras pruebas de validación y que está orientado a ser usado en el ámbito de la supercomputación.
In 2018, Europe launched the European Processor Initiative (EPI), which aims to increase the independence of the European supercomputing industry from foreign technology companies. Its core is the use of free and open source RISC-V instruction set architecture for the development and production of high-performance chips in Europe, providing the European Union with independence in the field of high-performance computing (HPC).September 21, 2021
The European Processor Initiative (EPI) has run the successful first test of its RISC-V-based European Processor Accelerator (EPAC), touting it as the initial step towards homegrown supercomputing hardware.September 21, 2021
The European Processor Initiative (EPI) a project with 28 partners from 10 European countries, with the goal of making EU achieve independence in HPC chip technologies and HPC infrastructure, is proud to announce that EPAC1.0 RISC-V Test Chip samples were delivered to EPI and initial tests of their operation were successful.
European Processor Initiative (EPI) has been working on providing independence for the European Union in the high-performance computing (HPC) field, by developing custom RISC-V-based accelerators. Called the European Processor Accelerator (EPAC) chip, designed for high efficiency and high throughput computation, it has been successfully taped out and is being tested at EPI's labs.
