UltraSoC is a pioneering company that delivers monitoring and analytics technology for use in the silicon chips (SoCs) that power today's industrial, consumer and professional electronic products. The Company is headquartered in Cambridge, UK, and is backed by Octopus Ventures. UltraSoC's technology looks inside the whole SoC, in an transparent and non-intrusive way, to understand exactly what is happening anywhere in that chip. The technology is built into hardware, so it works at full speed and does not require any software or control from the system. Engineers can use these capabilities to assist in the process of development and debugging, reducing time-to-market and preventing difficult-to-spot problems that can cause quality problems and product recalls. The same technology can be used to add new functionality to the device, such as the ability to optimize energy consumption, or enhanced security features.
