  • Release on:2017-09-08
XMOS, the 12 year-old Bristol programmable chip specialist co-founded by Transputer architect Professor David May, has raised another $15 million in a Series-E round bringing its total VC funding to $72 million.

The round was led by Infineon Technologies with additional funding from existing investors Amadeus Capital Partners, Draper Esprit, Foundation Capital and Robert Bosch Venture Capital.

“XMOS is ideally positioned at the crossover between embedded voice processing, biometrics and artificial intelligence, and the funds will enable us to execute our ambitious product development plans,” says Mark Lippett, “I am particularly delighted to welcome Infineon Technologies as a strategic investor in the business. We have worked closely with the Infineon team on groundbreaking sensor fusion technologies; the investment really strengthens our strategic partnership.”

“Through this investment, Infineon will further explore the high potential of voice control and is well positioned to address future use cases like speaker authentication or contextual awareness,” says Infineon’s Andreas Urschitz, “this was the logical next step, as we have identified HMI as a strategic growth area.”
