CAMBRIDGE, United Kingdom, 9th May 2016
UltraSoC, the leading provider of semiconductor IP for on-chip analytics, performance optimization and hardware-based security, today announced that it has been recognized by Gartner Inc as a “Cool Vendor” in the Embedded Software and Systems market.

UltraSoC’s silicon IP and software tools allow system-on-chip (SoC) designers to create a secure, independent on-chip infrastructure that non-intrusively monitors and analyzes the device’s internal behavior. These capabilities can be used to ease embedded systems development, speeding time-to-market and cutting costs; and to build innovative features for use in-field, when they can be used to spot unexpected behavior caused by bugs or by malicious interference (Bare Metal Security™), and to analyze performance trends.

”Gartner is renowned for its overview of the technology industry as a whole, although with a focus on things that impact end users & enterprises. Silicon IP is often invisible, so we believe being selected as a ‘Cool Vendor’ is a testimony to the impact our technology will have,” said Rupert Baines, UltraSoC CEO. “UltraSoC gives chip architects and designers a whole new set of tools that helps them understand how ultra-complex SoCs behave: we can help to cut millions of dollars from development budgets, and at the same time address one of the most pressing issues facing the connected world – cybersecurity. We consider Gartner ‘Cool Vendor’ status is a real stamp of approval to our approach, which has the potential to revolutionize the way the semiconductor industry works.”

The 2016 Gartner “Cool Vendors in Embedded Software and Systems, 2016” report published on April 19th is available from the Gartner website.
