NUVIA was founded on the promise of reimagining silicon design for high-performance computing environments. The company is focused on building products that blend the best attributes of computing performance, power efficiency, and scalability. NUVIA has entered into a definitive agreement to be acquired by Qualcomm Technologies. The combination of NUVIA and Qualcomm will bring the industry’s best engineering talent, technology, and resources together to create a new class of high-performance computing platforms that set the bar for their industry. At NUVIA, they see an opportunity to reimagine silicon design to create a new class of processors that delivers the step-function performance and energy efficiency improvements needed to power the next era of computing.
In March 2021, Qualcomm Technologies, Inc., has completed its acquisition of the world-class CPU and technology design company, NUVIA for $1.4 billion before working capital and other adjustments. Qualcomm Technologies expects to integrate next generation CPUs across a wide portfolio of products, including powering flagship smartphones, laptops, and digital cockpits, as well as Advanced Driver Assistance Systems, extended reality, and infrastructure networking solutions. The first Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ platforms to feature Qualcomm Technologies’ new internally designed CPUs are expected to sample in the second half of 2022 and will be designed for high performance ultraportable laptops.
