Ascenium is one of the startup companies making waves in the CPU and general purpose computing design space. The company is helmed by Peter Foley, CEO and co-founder, who previously worked on Apple’s Apple I and Apple II computers as well as a long list of hardware-design focused companies. Ascenium has recently secured $16 million in funding via a Series A raise, which clearly signals a belief in the company’s mission. And what is that mission, exactly?
To outdo existing CPU architectures in both performance and power efficiency via the first software-defined processor.
