Software-for-multicore support firm raises $18 million

Silexica has been developing the SLX programming tools since its launch in 2014 to analyze how software runs on heterogeneous multicore processors and provide deep system-level understanding for developers. Previous human-modulated spreadsheet methods are inadequate to address the complexity of modern internally- and externally-networked and internet-connected systems, the company said.


The EQT Ventures Fund (EQT Ventures) led the round, joining all existing investors Merus Capital, Paua Ventures, Seed Fonds Aachen and DSA Invest and it brings the total invested in the company to $26 million.


Maximilian Odendahl, CEO and co-founder of Silexica said the money would be used to create a vendor-agnostic, multi-application simulation platform to aid the optimization and integration of software provided for complex systems such as autonomous vehicles.


“We created SLX to support software professionals facing the biggest challenge in the industry – programming heterogeneous supercomputers. SLX is truly adding value to customers in delivering performance improvements and system insights on some of the most advanced computers being created,” he said.


The company’s $8 million Series A was completed in November 2016 and was led by Merus Capital and Paua Ventures with participation from existing investors Seed Fonds Aachen and DSA Invest.


Silexica customers include Denso for automotive applications, Fujitsu on telecommunications and Huawei.
