<div class="content-intro"><p><strong><u>About Celestial AI</u></strong></p> <p>As the industry strives to meet the demands of the AI workloads, bottlenecks in data transfers between processors and memory have hindered progress. The Photonic Fabric based Memory Fabric provides an optically scalable solution to the ‘Memory Wall’ problem, enabling tens of Terabytes of memory capacity at full HBM bandwidths with low tens of nanoseconds of latency and extremely low power. The Photonic Fabric based Compute Fabric enables Terabyte class bandwidth between compute nodes at low latency and power. Photonic Fabric delivers a transformative leap in AI system performance, ten years more advanced than existing technologies.</p></div><p><strong><u>Job Description:</u></strong></p> <p style="margin: 0in;">Celestial AI is looking for an experienced PHY Systems Engineer with deep understanding of Communication systems and digital implementation experience.
