Silexica's engineering team has many years of experience in the field of researching and programming tools for heterogeneous multicore platforms. They spent more than a decade in multicore software design automation for complex, multicore platforms before Silexica was founded in 2014 as a spin-off of the Institute for Communication Technologies and Embedded Systems (ICE) at RWTH Aachen University.

Silexica contributes to the ARAMiS (Automotive, Railway and Avionic Multicore Systems) II project. The goal of this project is to improve the operational safety of automobiles, trains and airplanes. More information.

The chair’s mission for compiler construction at the Computer Science Department of the TU Dresden is to improve the efficiency in terms of performance, energy consumption and/or productivity of programming heterogeneous computing platforms for domain-specific applications.

The Institute for Communication Technologies and Embedded Systems (ICE) at RWTH Aachen University contributes to the advancement of application-specific system designs. Emphasis is on compute-intensive embedded application domains like wireless communication infrastructure and terminals, multimedia processing, advanced driver assistance, and industrial internet (Industry 4.0). For more than two decades, the ICE has been the origin of a series of successful high-tech startup companies, all of which were acquired or are still in operations.
