CAMBRIDGE, United Kingdom, 22nd April 2016 – UltraSoC, the leading provider of semiconductor IP for on-chip analytics, performance optimization and hardware-based security, today announced that it has been named by leading London-based law firm Mishcon de Reya and business publication City AM, in the 2016 Leap 100 list of companies to watch.

Now in its second year, the Leap 100 provides a guide to the UK’s most exciting, fast-growth companies. Businesses are selected both for their growth over the past 12 months and for their future potential. As well as technology innovators such as UltraSoC, the list includes more familiar names such as Deliveroo and Headspace.

“We’re honored to be recognized in this dynamic group of companies,” said Rupert Baines, UltraSoC CEO. “Our technology works ‘under the hood’ to help improve – and reduce the cost – of almost any electronic product you can name. Making the Leap 100 is a testament to the hard work and creativity of the entire UltraSoC team.”

Nick Davis, Head of Mishcon de Reya’s Corporate department, commented: ”We launched the Leap 100 in 2015 to support a select group of some of the UK’s most exciting, high growth companies. This year’s list is yet again a dynamic group of companies to watch: it’s the definitive list of fast-growth companies for 2016.”

UltraSoC provides intellectual property (IP) and software tools that allow designers of complex silicon chips to monitor the internal operation of their products. These capabilities are used to assist faster, more efficient product development, speeding time-to-market and cutting costs; and they enable innovative features within the chips themselves, such as the ability to self-identify bugs or malicious interference (Bare Metal Security™), and to analyze performance trends.
