UK memory startup adds industry veterans to advisory board
Blueshift Memory in Cambridge is a 2016 startup with a proprietary memory chip design dedicated to handling large data sets and time-critical data.
Rupert Baines is currently CMO for Codasip, having previously been CEO at UltraSoC prior to its acquisition by Siemens. Ron Black is currently the CEO of Codasip, a German RISC-V IP core provider, having previously been CEO of GPU core vendor Imagination Technologies, as well as Rambus, MobiWire, UPEK, and Wavecom. Guillaume d’Eyssautier has 45 years of experience in the semiconductor industry and has held leading positions at such companies as Matra Harris Semiconductors, GEC-Plessey Semiconductors, Rockwell Semiconductor and Cadence.
Blueshift Memory’s IP is designed to integrate into the FPGA and ASIC design flow, with a software runtime to make system integration into full SoC-based systems easier, faster and more reliable. It optimizes the memory architecture so that large data sets and time-critical data can be more efficiently handled.
This can result in memory access improvements of up to 1,000 for some data-focused applications.
Big Data, AI, high-performance computing, video cards and network routers are all areas of potential application.
