Tilera Recognized as One of the World's Most Innovative Companies by the MIT Technology Review

Tilera Joins Google, Amazon and Apple in Technology Review's TR50 2010

SAN JOSE, CA--(Marketwire - March 4, 2010) -  Tilera® Corporation today announced its inclusion in Technology Review's 2010 TR50, the first annual list of the 50 most innovative companies in the world. Spanning energy, computing, the Web, biomedicine, and materials, each company on the list has been evaluated based on its business model, strategies for deploying and scaling up its technologies, and the likelihood of success. Each company in the 2010 TR50 has excelled not only at inventing technology but also at using it to transform how we live and work.

"Rather than trying to squeeze the last bit of performance from old technologies, Tilera has established a new basis for computing performance with our TILE processors," said Omid Tahernia, Tilera's president and chief executive officer. "It is an honor to be recognized for our efforts in the field of computing."

"In choosing the TR50, we picked companies with this year's most important inventions and breakthroughs. But we also selected companies that are successfully growing businesses and markets around innovative new products," said Jason Pontin, editor in chief and publisher of Technology Review. "The TR50 list is our selection of companies that show the most impressive innovation in commercializing new technologies."

Since 2007, when Tilera revolutionized the industry by introducing the world's first 64-core processor, Tilera has continued to create low-power, highly efficient and easy-to-program chips utilizing a breakthrough multicore architecture that scales to hundreds of cores. Like the diverse group of companies honored, including GE, Google, Apple and Amazon, Tilera continues to innovate, having recently announced its latest TILE-Gx family that includes the world's first 100-core processor.
