AI semiconductor startup Rebellions has unveiled its latest product, ATOMTM, an AI semiconductor for data centers.
The chip was manufactured in Samsung’s 5-nanometer EUV process and completed its design phase, known as tape-out, in June.
Since its founding in September 2020, Rebellions has attracted attention for its rapid success in bringing IONTM, a finance-oriented chip, to market within a year of its founding.
The company’s latest product, Atom, has demonstrated performance comparable to global standard NPUs and supports language models, including the Transformer series.
One of the best-known Transformer models, GPT, is used in OpenAI’s ChatGPT.
The company attributes its rapid success to a strategy focused on software optimization and a deep understanding of the global AI market.
With the launch of Atom, Rebellions is at the forefront of the AI semiconductor market in South Korea, providing effective services for speech and imaging models.
Rebellions received a KRW 30 billion strategic investment from KT last year and plan to apply Atom to KT’s ultra-large AI service, Belief, which is expected to launch later this year.
The company also plans to commercialize its technology in data centers and show tangible results in the AI trading field.
Following a successful KRW 92 billion Series A funding round last July, Rebellions plans to use the investment to develop Atom further and accelerate its market entry.
