The company claims that its "algorithmic" systems approach to embedded memory provision can result in an order of magnitude increase in embedded memory performance. It also states that it is independent of memory type and process technology.
Memoir Systems was co-founded in March 2009 by Sundar Iyer (CTO) and Da Chuang (COO), and is backed by Lightspeed Venture Partners. Iyer has previous experience as co-founder and CTO of Nemo Systems, a network memory company that was acquired by Cisco Systems, and Chuang was a technical leader at Cisco.
In conjunction with the formal launch of the company, memory industry veteran, Adam Kablanian, has been named as CEO of Memoir Systems. "Memoir’s synthesis platform can automatically select suitable memory macros from a memory IP library, and incorporate our memory algorithms to synthesize a new memory that is custom-made for the targeted application," said Da Chuang, COO, in a statement.
In examples like packet inspection for networking and high-performance multiprocessor SOCs the number of memory accesses and the impact of memory sizes and locations can be important. Memoir seeks to provide memory usage analysis so that memory optimization and customization can be done. In particular the provision of multiple read- and write-ports to optimally sized memories can have a large impact on SoC and system performance, the company said.
