d-Matrix has fundamentally changed the physics of memory-compute integration with our digital in-memory compute (DIMC) engine. The “holy grail” of AI compute has been to break through the memory wall to minimize data movements. We’ve achieved this with a first-of-its-kind DIMC engine. Having secured over $154M, $110M in our Series B offering, d-Matrix is poised to advance Large Language Models to scale Generative inference acceleration with our chiplets and In-Memory compute approach. We are on track to deliver our first commercial product in 2024. We are poised to meet the energy and performance demands of these Large Language Models. The company has 100+ employees across Silicon Valley, Sydney and Bengaluru.

Our pedigree comes from companies like Microsoft, Broadcom, Inphi, Intel, Texas Instruments, Lucent, MIPS and Wave Computing. Our past successes include building chips for all the cloud hyperscalers globally - Amazon, Facebook, Google, Microsoft, Alibaba, Tencent along with enterprise and mobile operators like China Mobile, Cisco, Nokia, Ciena, Reliance Jio, Verizon, AT&AT. We are recognized leaders in the mixed signal, DSP connectivity space, now applying our skills to next generation AI.
