Mythic, an Austin, Texas-based AI processor company with breakthrough analog compute-in-memory technology, raised $13 million in a new round of funding, bringing its total raised $178 million to date.
Mythic’s existing investors Atreides Management, DCVC, and Lux Capital contributed to the round, along with new investors Catapult Ventures and Hermann Hauser Investment.
This investment will help Mythic bring to market its next-generation M2000 series product, which builds on the legacy of Mythic’s M1076 Analog Matrix Processor (Mythic AMP™). The company plans to further grow its headcount in 2024 as the M2000 series nears production.
“Mythic’s technology is truly one of a kind with our analog computing approach that offers huge leaps in performance and efficiency compared to digital processors, not to mention substantial cost benefits. This new funding will help us accelerate our path forward to help companies to unlock the full potential of edge AI inferencing,” said Dave Fick, co-founder, and CEO at Mythic. “Mythic has already seen strong demand for the M1076, so we’re confident that our next-generation processor will be widely adopted in computer vision applications like smart robots, security cameras, drones, and AR headsets. The potential for analog computing is truly limitless.”
Mythic is ushering in the next era of AI innovation for defense applications, enterprises, industrial environments, smart cities, the smart home, and beyond.
The company also announced the appointment of its new CEO Dave Fick, who co-founded the company and previously served as CTO.
