Liquid Instruments, the San Diego, CA-based developer of Moku:Lab, a software-configurable hardware platform for precision test and measurement and advanced digital signal processing, raised $8.16m in Series A funding.
The round was led by US-based Anzu Partners and includes follow-on investor ANU Connect Ventures in Australia.
The company intends to use the funds to accelerate product development as it continues its growth in the education, research and industrial measurement markets in the US, Europe and Asia.
Founded in 2014 by a team of experimental physicists and engineers, including former researchers from NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory, with expertise in precision measurement and gravitational wave detector instrumentation, and led by Prof Daniel Shaddock, CEO, Liquid Instruments has developed Moku:Lab, which integrates 12 precision test and measurement instruments into a single, compact hardware device using a field-programmable gate array (FPGA)-based software-reconfigurable platform.
Moku:Lab is controlled through the company’s iPad App, or its LabVIEW, Python and MATLAB APIs (Application Programming Interfaces).
