Nuvia, a Santa Clara-based silicon design upstart founded by former Apple and Google veterans, has announced that it’s closed $240 million in Series B funding led by venture capital firm Mithril Capital, with participation from other investors including BlackRock, Fidelity, Dell Technologies Capital, Mayfield, Atlantic Bridge, and Redline Capital. The Series B fundraise follows a $53 million Series A raised by Nuvia in November of last year, on the heels of the company’s founding. The new investment has apparently boosted the total amount of funding that Nuvia has raised since its founding just a year ago to nearly $300 million. The valuation that came with the new funding isn’t disclosed.

Nuvia’s new fundraise was actually led by Mithril Capital in partnership with two silicon design veterans by the names of Sehat Sutardja and Weili Dai, best known as the couple who founded semiconductor powerhouse Marvell Technology Group. Both individuals are veterans of the semiconductor industry, with an experience that comes in handy for Nuvia, which is a relatively new upstart in the industry. Nuvia was founded last year by three chip design veterans by the names of John Bruno, Manu Gulati, and Gerard Williams. Williams, who serves as CEO, was a former top chip designer at Apple, where he served as the chief architect for the company’s iPhone and iPad chips. He made headlines late last year when Apple launched a suit against him over allegations of breaking his employment agreement while he worked at the company. In response, Williams filed a countersuit, with the case still ongoing.

Nuvia is working on a new type of system on a chip (SoC) and CPU for computers, respectively codenamed “Orion” and “Phoenix”. Being a relatively new startup, not much has been dished out about the company’s intended product and the progress on its development.

  • i am a successful business owner and father. I got one of these already programmed blank ATM cards that allows me withdraw a maximum of $5,000 daily for 30 days. I am so happy about these cards because I received mine last week and have already used it to get $20,000. Skylink technology is giving out these cards to support people in any kind of financial problem. I must be sincere to you, when i first saw the advert, I believed it to be illegal and a hoax but when I contacted this team, they confirmed to me that although it is illegal, nobody gets caught while using these cards because they have been programmed to disable every communication once inserted into any Automated Teller Machine(ATM). If interested get through to them on mail: skylinktechnes@yahoo.com  or  whatsapp/telegram: +1(213)785-1553
