General intelligence computing solutions provider, CIX (此芯科技) announced that it has completed angel and angel+ rounds of financing totaling tens of millions of dollars. Sky9 Capital participated in the Angel+ round led by Qiming Venture Partners. These funds will be used to accelerate the R&D and market expansion.
Established in October 2021, CIX is committed to developing a general intelligence computing system compatible with ARM, providing one-stop solutions for semiconductor products. The company has strong technical expertise in the fields of CPU R&D, SoC (System on Chip) and full-stack software development.
Ron Cao, Founder and Partner of Sky9 Capital, said: “Recently, the Apple M1 series, Nvidia Grace, Ampere and the new ARM architecture have shown the great performance potential of ARM, and let us see the opportunities generated by ARM CPU. Whether at a high-performance terminal or a data center, ARM CPU can provide the same or even better performance than x86. In addition, it can adapt to various scenarios by providing better system integration. CIX has a world class technical team with an average of more than 20 years of experience in the industry, and a deep understanding of technology, products, market and ecology. We are fully confident in them and believe that CIX will become a leader in the industry.”
