About us

Hoursec, Energy Efficient Training, and Inference On-A-Chip started as a research on synapses, this research is now a computing architecture thanks to our constant quest for energy efficiencies and our genuine motivation to find innovative solutions and explanations for our customer's problems. Our culture only oscillates around cutting-edge technology that blends to the maximum with the environment, offering only sustainable alternatives. Like our brains, smart can only be sustainable and our main focus is on minimizing and optimizing the energy requirements on absolutely everything that we do. We are specialized in optimizing computing, since “Computation does not require energy, only the movement of data”, opening the door to a myriad of opportunities for creative data pathways solutions.


The beauty of creating a new component is that it gives us flexibility.
