PARIS – Analog startup Lynguent Inc. said it has appointed Joe Agiato, president of Newlight Asset Partners, and Mike Hill, managing director of learning and organization development for Lam Research Corporation, to its advisory board.
Lynguent (Portland, Ore.) is a nine-year old startup whose ModLyng Integrated Modeling Environment (IME) is claimed to change the way HDL-based simulation models are created, managed and supported for analog, digital and mixed-signal domains.
Using ModLyng’s graphical modeling technology, modeling tasks can be completed in a fraction of the time required for traditional text-based methods, the company said. Two independent university studies demonstrated that ModLyng reduces, by at least a factor of 10, the time and cost required to create and support simulation models. In September, Sam Young, a 35-year veteran of the semiconductor industry, was named president and CEO of privately-held Lynguent.
Commenting on the appointments, Young declared: “A good group of corporate advisors can make a tremendous difference in how successful we will be in navigating through the challenges our anticipated rapid growth will present.”
Young continued: “Joe’s expertise in finance and commercializing IP technologies is very helpful for us, and Mike is working with us to help us make our organization more effective as we go through various stages of our evolution.”
David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
