XMOS was founded in July 2015 and has found some traction for its processor technology in audio applications. XMOS already has a partnership with Infineon which combined Infineon radar and microphone technologies with XMOS data processing and DSP for beam-forming capabilities (see Infineon fuses Radar and MEMS microphone data through XMOS' audio processor ).
Infineon Technologies AG led the investment with additional funding from existing XMOS investors Amadeus Capital Partners, Draper Esprit, Foundation Capital and Robert Bosch Venture Capital.
"XMOS is ideally positioned at the crossover between embedded voice processing, biometrics and artificial intelligence, and the funds will enable us to execute our ambitious product development plans," said Mark Lippett, CEO of XMOS, in a statement. "We have worked closely with the Infineon team on groundbreaking sensor fusion technologies; the investment really strengthens our strategic partnership."
