Coherent Logix: Empowering Innovation in Embedded Systems

Michael B. Doerr, Founder and CEO
The principle value of military equipment lies in its ruggedness, reliability, and its readiness to perform in any kind of environmental condition. However, to carry out their highrisk operations successfully, the equipment requires unprecedented computational power in a compact size and weight, and must consume less power, while exhibiting long operational life. The custom application-specific integrated circuits (ASICs) and systems-on-chip (SOCs) in today’s market are guaranteed to offer this operational flexibility and computational power for military equipment, however, they come with a big price tag, millions of dollars. What if a reliable and fullyprogrammable solution could achieve those performance metrics without costing a fortune? That is where Coherent Logix outshines all of its peers in the embedded systems market.

The Coherent Logix HyperX™ Memory Network Processor brings out the same performance as a custom, ASIC or SOC well within a client’s budget. It enables the manufacturers to simplify supply chains and decrease costs by consolidating the functionality of dedicated ASIC, DSP, and FPGA chipsets into a single parallelprocessing chip. In addition, the company makes these ASICs or SOCs 100% programmable according to the specifications of a client. For instance, if a client wants to develop chips for space applications that require extreme radiation tolerance, they can do so easily using the HyperX™ platform. Coherent Logix offers design and development teams a revolutionary and virtualized platform that empowers innovation and differentiation while breaking down the existing technological constraints. Above all, the HyperX™ processor improve overall product performance and prolongs product life by allowing manufacturers to distribute software updates, allowing a device to keep pace with changing technology, market conditions, and standards.

According to Michael B. Doerr, the Founder and CEO of Coherent Logix, the credit for this HyperX™ processor, and its accomplishments in the embedded systems market, goes to the systems engineering team of Coherent Logix. This team has been an active participant in the semiconductor space since the dawn of processor design and electronic design automation (EDA), four decades ago. As a company, Coherent Logix is deeply involved in development of the Next-Generation TV system in the U.S., and has pioneered some of the latest, cutting-edge capabilities for the 5G (3GPP) standards.


Our success has been the result of the combination of our core computing, platform, and prototyping technology with an extremely talented and experienced systems engineering team, which allowed us to put forth remarkable solutions for our clients

“Our success has been the result of the combination of our core computing, platform, and prototyping technology with an extremely talented and experienced systems engineering team, which allowed us to put forth remarkable solutions for our clients,” says Doerr.

Coherent Logix provides tools and training for defense sector clients enabling them to develop their own software. Some clients approach us to develop subsystems for their applications. For them, we provide standard libraries that instantiate many different functions required for embedded systems development. Clients can use these libraries to build their products. The company has also developed a complete software platform (ISDE™) for commercial product innovation.

Displaying resilience, Coherent Logix has risen to the challenge of innovating and pioneering new technologies and solutions amid the COVID-19 pandemic, which is wreaking havoc across industries. As the bandwidth demand is increasing exponentially due to the work-from-home culture, Coherent Logix’ cable and wireless infrastructure technologies should become extremely beneficial for helping operators meet the rising demand. “This is another important area where our technology is able to make a tremendous impact,” notes Doerr. Backed by a rich history in the aerospace and defense field, Coherent Logix now aims to keep growing its client base in the TV, 5G, military/ aerospace, computer vision/AI, and Home IoT sectors. . “We have received positive feedback from our customers, and we are very excited about our future. We are now looking forward to establishing our commercial product portfolio and gaining a greater exposure across these domains,” concludes Doerr.
