University of Kent launches new technology spin-out company

08.03.2006


The University of Kent has launched UltraSoC Technologies Ltd, a new spin-out company that is developing a technology platform for real-time embedded systems-on-chip (SoC). This ground-breaking technology has produced improved debugging tools and testing methods for many computer systems within devices such as mobile phones, white goods and motor vehicles. The work has already resulted in applications for three worldwide patents.



UltraSoC Technologies Ltd recently won a Proof-of-Concept for Knowledge Transfer Award, a SEEDA and European Social Fund initiative designed to encourage knowledge transfer between higher education institutions and the business community.

Dr Klaus McDonald-Maier, team leader of the research group that produced the technology, said: ‘This funding will help us build a proof-of-concept demonstrator that will fully illustrate the capability of one of the tools in the automotive industry. We have already spoken to the major semiconductor manufacturers and suppliers and they are all very excited about the potential for our technology.’


Carole Barron, Head of Kent Enterprise at the University of Kent said: ‘We are delighted to have facilitated the creation of UltraSoC Technologies Ltd, which is one of a number of spin-out companies we have been involved with over recent months.’

Professor Phil Davies, Pro-Vice-Chancellor for Research, added: ‘I am very pleased that Ultrasoc have received this funding. This is a great example of University ideas being turned into reality.’

UltraSoC Technologies Ltd originated in the University’s Department of Electronics and builds on Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) funded research, as well as a South of England Proof-of-Concept Award. It is a member of the Canterbury Enterprise Hub, a major SEEDA initiative that was created to develop knowledge-based businesses.

UltraSoC Technologies Ltd is now engaged in creating new software and hardware tools to support the development of embedded SoCs. The company will spend the next two years developing the technology and also building on its strategic relationships with major semiconductor and embedded systems developers to maximise commercial opportunities.

Im Focus: Safe glide at total engine failure with ELA-inside

On January 15, 2009, Chesley B. Sullenberger was celebrated world-wide: after the two engines had failed due to bird strike, he and his flight crew succeeded after a glide flight with an Airbus A320 in ditching on the Hudson River. All 155 people on board were saved.

Im Focus: Dresdner scientists print tomorrow’s world

The Fraunhofer IWS Dresden and Technische Universität Dresden inaugurated their jointly operated Center for Additive Manufacturing Dresden (AMCD) with a festive ceremony on February 7, 2017. Scientists from various disciplines perform research on materials, additive manufacturing processes and innovative technologies, which build up components in a layer by layer process. This technology opens up new horizons for component design and combinations of functions. For example during fabrication, electrical conductors and sensors are already able to be additively manufactured into components. They provide information about stress conditions of a product during operation.

The 3D-printing technology, or additive manufacturing as it is often called, has long made the step out of scientific research laboratories into industrial...
