Rex Computing, a San Francisco-based fabless semiconductor startup, raised $1.25m in seed funding.
The round was led by Founders Fund’s FF Science.
The company intends for the continued development and deployment of its processor.
Founded in 2013 by Thomas Sohmers and Paul Sebexen, REX Computing develops high performance energy-efficient computer processors. The REX Neo processor is targeting 256 GFLOPs of double precision floating point performance with the package and power budget of a smartphone-class processor.
The company is working with early customers in fields related to digital signal processing, image processing, computer vision, machine learning, and other computationally-intensive application spaces, and expects first silicon shipping to customers in 2016.
Rex is hiring.
