UltraSoC is a pioneering technology start-up based in Cambridge, UK.

Our products put intelligent self-analytic capabilities in the systems-on-chip (SoCs) at the heart of today’s consumer electronic, computing and communications products.

Our embedded analytics technology helps solve the most pressing problems faced by the high-tech industries today – including cybersecurity, functional safety, and the management of complexity. Our solutions also allow designers to develop SoCs – the driving force behind both performance improvement and cost reduction in the electronics business – more quickly and cost-effectively.

UltraSoC’s flagship product line is a suite of semiconductor IP that puts an intelligent analytics infrastructure into the core hardware of an SoC. This provides intimate visibility of the real-world behavior of entire systems. The ultimate benefits include robustness against malicious intrusions;  enhanced product safety; reduced system power consumption; and overall better performance – with fine-tuning of end products even after they are deployed in the field.  These capabilities address applications in a broad range of market sectors, from automotive and IoT products, to at-scale computing and communications infrastructure.

Our products are used by leading names including HiSilicon (Huawei), Imagination Technologies, Movidius (now Intel) and PMC-Sierra (now Microsemi) to bring these proven hardware-embedded benefits to their customers. Our partners include Andes, ARM, Baysand, Cadence/Tensilica, CEVA, Codasip, Lauterbach, MIPS, NetSpeed, Percepio, Roa Logic, SiFive, Syntacore and Teledyne LeCroy.

UltraSoC’s technology also has a substantial impact on the increasingly-pressurized economics of the semiconductor industry. Traditional SoC development methodologies have failed to keep pace with escalating systemic complexity, creating a ‘productivity gap’. Our intelligent analytics technology closes that gap, giving engineering teams actionable insights that shorten the total development cycle time, accelerate debug, and reduce risk and cost to ensure timely market entry. Analysis from SemiCo research demonstrates the bottom-line value of this approach – SoC design teams can double their profitability and reduce their development costs by a quarter by using UltraSoC.

UltraSoC is an active member of the RISC-V consortium, which aims to encourage the use of a new open source processor architecture which has been dubbed “the Linux of semiconductors”.

The company was named one of the 100 most exciting companies in the UK in the 2016 Mishcon de Reya / CityAM “Leap 100” list, and by Gartner as one of its 2016 “Cool Vendors”. It was recognized as “Best New Company” in the 2015 ELEKTRA Awards.
