Efficient Computer, a Pittsburgh, PA-based computer architecture and software stack company, raised $16M in Seed funding.

The round was led by Eclipse.

The company intends to use the funds to expand operations and development efforts.

Led by CEO Brandon Lucia, Efficient has created a computer architecture and software stack that delivers levels of energy efficiency. Combining software with hardware, this processor is ideal for edge computing devices and applications across industries, including the Internet of Things, wearable and implantable health devices, space systems, and security and defense, where power restrictions have often limited both capabilities and value.

Commenting on the news, Brandon Lucia said: “We are removing the energy barrier from computing at the edge, while giving developers the freedom and flexibility to quickly build devices and applications at scale. Efficient hardware and software will significantly reduce energy consumption for computing, creating entirely new categories of use cases.”
