MESH and SK hynix joined existing investors Accelerate Blue Fund, Candou Ventures, Hui Capital, Intel Capital, In-Q-Tel, Michigan Capital Network, Stata Ventures, and other private investors in this round.
“We are extremely grateful to have MESH and SK hynix join our existing investors in this round, and welcome Edward Chyau and Heejin Chung to the board,” said Mo Faisal, CEO and founder of Movellus. “We were able to close the round with a significant step up in valuation in a challenging economic environment, and SK hynix’s strategic investment is a strong endorsement in our technology and long-term strategy.”
“SK hynix is pushing the envelope on memory performance, and looking beyond process improvements, to system level innovation in 3D packaging and chiplets to maintain the trajectory of the last 50 years,” said Heejin Chung, Head of Venture Investment at SK hynix. “Movellus’ clock network technology is an avenue to improve not only performance, but we also believe it will improve power and yield for memory and other complex ICs. We’re very excited to enable Movellus to accelerate the adoption of this technology.”
“As companies develop the next generation of complex ICs, new innovations are needed to unlock the power and performance potential of these designs. While the clock distribution network doesn’t get a lot of attention, it is the underlying backbone that orchestrates every chip,” said Edward Chyau, Managing Partner at MESH. “We believe Movellus has the expertise and technology in this field to help companies make dramatic system level improvements, and MESH will leverage its network in the electronics supply chain to support the proliferation of Movellus’ technology.”
