Calxeda Isn’t Dead Yet

Remember Calxeda? The chipmaker that was going to do super power-efficient server chips based on ARM? Well, that company went under a year ago, but their technology, and some of their personnel, have resurfaced under a new name: Silver Lining Systems.

The new company’s website is barely more than a placeholder, but it does credit Calxeda with developing its technology. It also mentions Foxconn prominently, the Chinese contract manufacturer. The Foxconn afiliation suggests that either it or Silver Lining will be making full server systems, not just chips.
