Ultrasoc, a spin-out of University of Essex, has won £150k for its debug technology, jointly developed with the University of Cambridge, from the UK’s Technology Strategy Board (TSB). The UK-based firm plans to use the prize money to further develop its debug technology product, called Speedo. Ultrasoc’s Speedo aims to identify the potential of increasing energy efficiency in electronic systems through using the firm’s debug technology, which collects analytics on energy used by systems. Klaus McDonald-Maier, chief scientist of UltraSoC and professor and director of research at the University of Essex, said: “We believe that the complimentary expertise of UltraSoC and the University of Cambridge will deliver significant advances in this important area of low power computing.”
