Santa Clara, Calif.-based AMD said the deal will expand its enterprise AI solutions globally. Silo AI has developed tailored AI models, platforms and solutions for leading enterprises spanning cloud, embedded and endpoint computing markets, AMD said in a news release. Its customers include Allianz (ALIZY), Philips (PHG), BMW (BMWYY)-owned Rolls-Royce and Unilever (UL).

Silo AI is based in Helsinki, Finland, and has operations across Europe and North America.

Additionally, the acquisition is part of AMD's strategy to deliver end-to-end AI solutions based on open standards, the company said. The parties expect the transaction to close in the second half of 2024.

The Silo AI purchase follows AMD's 2023 acquisitions of Mipsology and Nod.ai.

In the AI chip market, AMD competes with Nvidia (NVDA) and custom chip designers Broadcom (AVGO) and Marvell Technology (MRVL).
