Founded in 2004 and based in Netanya Israel,
Plurality Ltd. is a privately held company of direct employees and
dedicated consulting specialists. The company combines the skills of
world-class academics, engineers, and industry experts in the field of
VLSI/SOC design and advanced computer and microprocessor architectures.
Plurality’s technology is built upon
supercomputer architectural concepts developed at the Technion, Israel
Institute of Technology, to create a scalable, easily-programmable
many-core processor to serve the ever growing need for compute
performance in consumer, industrial and scientific applications.
In 2008 Plurality’s HyperCore multicore
processor became the highest performance* architecture of any
chip-level shared memory multicore processor, with which Plurality has
effectively demonstrated the near-linear scaling of multicore
performance levels recognized as the highest in the market today.
Plurality has created a multicore architecture
capable of tracking the increasing demand for high efficiency, fine
grained scalable multiple-instruction multiple-data (MIMD) solutions
for consumer, business and scientific markets now and in the future.
With today’s increasing demand for the
performance of reliable cost effective microprocessors, the only viable
means of accelerating processor performance is the creation of a
tightly integrated multicore structure.
