Mitrionics reemerges under new ownership
Mitrionics has reemerged in the HPC market with the creation of a new company, Mitrionics AB, following the full transfer of the Mitrionics intellectual property to new ownership. The Mitrionics company name and all other intellectual properties, including the Mitrion Virtual Processor, the Mitrion Software Development Kit, all software source code, patents, trademarks, the website, domain names, and any other intellectual properties now belong to the new owners.
To ensure the success of the newly-formed company, it has received sufficient funding for a full two-year period, and has the long-term support of its investors. The company will now continue the core business of selling FPGA-accelerated systems equipped with the Mitrion Virtual Processor and the Mitrion-C parallel programming language, and providing related development and support services.
Mitrionics AB will be headed by its owner and CEO, Sasan Fallahi. Mitrionics’ original founder, Stefan Möhl, has joined the new company as its chief technology officer, along with other key personnel from the previous company.
'Mitrionics is fortunate to begin its new operation with an impressive portfolio of products and strong working relationships with many of the HPC industry leaders,' stated Fallahi, CEO of Mitrionics AB. 'Our success is dependent on the success of our partners, and our goal is to continue enhancing our technologies to meet the needs of our mutual customers.'
'Convey recognises the importance of Mitrionics’ products and technology toward the advancement of our FPGA-based hybrid-core computing systems,' said Bruce Toal, CEO and co-founder of Convey Computer. 'We look forward to Mitrionics returning — their tools enable our customers to develop and deploy custom personalities more quickly than traditional hardware description languages.'
'We have had a long history alongside Mitrionics,' said Allan Cantle, president and founder of Nallatech. 'Their commitment to reconfigurable computing in HPC has been reliable, and we are delighted to see them resume their valuable contributions to high performance reconfigurable computing.'
'We are very happy to see Mitrionics re-launch,' said Reuven Weintraub, founder and CEO of GiDEL. 'The ability to program for FPGAs in software is very important, and there are not many tools able to do it. Therefore, we are very glad to see Mitrionics return to the HPC and supercomputing market.'
