“A scientific and technological seedbank, preserving and building on high reliability concurrent computing technologies while expanding into new applications with the same reliable, robust and disciplined approach. A focus on high performance, high reliability, low latency microprocessors, microcomputers and massive parallelism with a legacy in transputers, new applications of Communicating Sequential Processes (CSP), and relevant concurrency in Embedded Systems.”
