(Austin, Texas), a developer of ARM-based processors and software for low-power servers for data centers, has announced in 2012 that it raised an additional $55 million in equity funding. This puts the total raised by Calxeda over $100 million since the company was founded as Smooth-Stone in 2008.
Calxeda is already shipping the 32-bit EnergyCore processor and with ARM releasing details of 64-bit capable ARMv8 architecture it is expected that Calxeda will continue to make announcements that seek to address a fragmenting server market.
ARM is a significant investor in Calxeda along with: Austin Ventures, Vulcan Capital, Advanced Technology Investment Co. (the owner of Globalfoundries) Battery Ventures, Flybridge Capital Partners and Highland Capital Partners. So expect to Calxeda to be one of the surrogates through which the ARM versus Intel battle is played out in 2013.
Lowering power consumption is at the core of Calxeda's business.
