ARM-based server IC company becomes Calxeda
The name change is believed to have been done to distinguish the company from others of the same name.
“We believe the solution requires an order of magnitude improvement, literally ten times the energy efficiency, for half the price,” says Barry Evans, CEO of Calxeda, “this is within our reach, with technologies like we are building at Calxeda, where we expect early OEM designs in the first half of 2011. The response from potential customers, technology partners and the industry overall validates we are onto something big.”
Calxeda is backed by ATIC, the Abu Dhabi backers of GloFo, TI, Battery Ventures, Flybridge Capital Partners, and Highland Capital Partners
