About Crypto Quantique
Crypto Quantique has created the world’s most secure end-to-end IoT security platform. At its heart is the world’s first quantum-driven semiconductor hardware IP, called QDID, that generates multiple, unique, unforgeable cryptographic keys for devices manufactured using standard CMOS processes. The keys do not need to be stored and can be used independently by multiple applications on demand. When combined with cryptographic APIs from the company’s universal IoT security platform, QuarkLink, the solution creates a secure bridge between silicon, device, software, and solutions provider.
The company, which is based in London, UK, was co-founded by Dr. Shahram Mossayebi (CEO), an expert in cryptosystems, and Dr. Patrick Camilleri (VP Research & Innovation), a semiconductor designer with significant experience in complex parallel computer systems.
Founded in 2002, XtremeEDA is a leading provider of professional design and functional verification services solutions. Along with its RISC-V partner Codasip, it offers a robust portfolio of services and educational resources, and a single source solution for architectural modeling, intellectual property integration, and verification of highly complex ASIC, SoC, and FPGA chips. The company has a strong track record of working with both tool providers and developers to define best-in-class design methodologies and reuse practices that provide the competitive advantage in the rapidly evolving electronics market. The company is headquartered in Ottawa, Canada with a US-based subsidiary, XtremeEDA USA, based in Austin, TX.
