GreenWaves Technologies is a fabless semiconductor start-up designing disruptive ultra-low power embedded solutions for image, sound and vibration AI processing in sensing devices. GreenWaves was founded in late 2014 with the mission of revolutionizing the market for intelligent sensors and devices with ultra-low energy and cost-efficient solutions. GreenWaves’ GAP8 is the industry’s first ultra-low-power processor enabling battery-operated artificial intelligence (AI) in Internet of Things (IoT) applications. The company is headquartered in Grenoble, France with offices in Bologna, Italy and Shanghai, China.
Our team comes from a wide range of backgrounds. We are from all over the world with more than 10 nationalities. We have many years of experience, in large and small companies, of bringing successful new-to-world products to market.
GreenWaves is one of a growing group of semiconductor design companies that are committing to Open Source projects. We believe that this both advances innovation and provides customers with confidence in their decision to commit to our products. We are actively participating in two Open Source projects that provide some of the components in GAP8’s design and without which GAP8 would not exist, the RISC V Instruction Set Architecture (ISA) and Parallel Ultra Low Power (PULP) projects.
Our team includes members from the two Universities working on the PULP program, ETH Zurich, Switzerland and UniBo, Bologna, Italy, and GreenWaves staff continue to feedback contributions into both the PULP and RISC-V communities.
