Sesterce Lab

Composed of dozens of researchers specialized in microelectronics, AI, machine learning and blockchain, we are at the heart of innovation in blockchain and HPC datacenters.

Lab Missions

The goals of the Sesterce Lab are to make blockchain and AI infrastructures more efficient while reducing the environmental footprint by rethinking the hardware design of these technologies.

ARX Project

We are reimagining the asynchronous chip.

The Lab's core project is to think outside the box by challenging the way current chips are designed. The advantages of asynchronous chips are significant, they consume much less energy for the same computational power and allow better densification of components. The asynchronous model is for the moment less scalable than the synchronous model and therefore abandoned by the microchip industry. Our goal at Sesterce is to promote this technology to face the challenges of global warming by creating chips that consume less energy.

Lab Partners

We are honored to be surrounded by such brilliant partners. Research centers, financial and industrial partners, our local area offers us the possibility to have big ambitions.


Our lab has been recognized several times for its work on HPC datacenter chips and software.

Winner of the 2020 and 2022 innovation contests of the French Ministry of Innovation and Research, we have been rewarded for our various research projects on datacenter management software with the creation of a synchronization AI. We won the 2022 one for our work on asynchronous chips, an important disruptive technology for the ecological transition.
