SimpleMachines, Inc. is a stealth-mode startup based in Madison, WI building next-generation semiconductor chips targeted at datacenters and future Edge Computing deployment. The company’s vision is to “Build Hardware Like Software”. SMI has developed a disruptive technology that distills down to the minimum what is required to build a chip whose functions can be dynamically changed.   This enables all the efficiencies of a customized chip, while offering all the advantages and simplicity of being configurable by software.  This paradigm shift will offer enormous value to datacenters, cloud services and ultimately the larger Edge Computing paradigm.   SimpleMachines was co-founded by Karu Sankaralingam (Professor at UW-Madison) and Jeff Thomas (former VP of Engineering at Sun Microsystems). The company is funded. You can reach us via email at info@simplemachinesinc.com
