LONDON Belfast-based expression processor development start-up Titan IC Systems has been named Northern Ireland winner of the new best emerging international company category in the All-Island Seedcorn Business Competition run by InterTradeIreland.
A spin-out from the Institute of Electronics, Communications and Information Technology (ECIT) at Queen's University Belfast, the company has thus added seedcorn funding worth £13,500.
The company was formed in September 2007 to commercialize an ultra-fast processor, capable of inspecting the content of packets of data streamed at up to 10Gbits/second.
Dubbed the RXP - the Regular Expression Processor Ė the device was developed by Titan IC's chief technical officer, Dr Sakir Sezer.
RXP is said to be the first 32-bit data-path regular expression processor capable of processing POSIX/PCRE compatible regular expressions in parallel at 5-20 Gbits/s line rates.
"The RXP is a revolutionary new technology capable of processing multiple characters and multiple regular expressions in parallel as concurrent tasks on multiple processing engines.
As we continue to work on its development, we are delighted to have won seedcorn funding from InterTradeIreland which has already resulted in significant interest from industry experts," commented Dr Godfrey Gaston, Titan IC's CEO.
