This article informs that the company Aspex Semiconductor is expanding its HighWycombe-based development team as it sees design-ins for its parallel processing semiconductor architecture growing. According to Jeremy Hendy, VP of marketing at Aspex, the firm has 25 customers designing its Line-dancer parallel processor into products which include high-end printers and ultrasound medical imaging systems. According to Hendy, another important strategy for the firm is the development of versions of its parallel processor architecture for specific applications, the first of which is the Line-dancer-HD with increased memory bandwidth and I/O capabilities for video processing applications.
