Aprius, a secretive Sunnyvale company focused on the “high-speed computer interconnect field,” said it has raised $11 million in a first round of funding.
Lightspeed Ventures Partners and NEA led the financing round.
Here is the company’s statement.
Aprius was founded in June 2006 by three former Intel employees, one of them a former Intel Fellow. The founders arrived at Intel after working for LightLogic, a startup that built 10 Gigabit Ethernet optical transceivers and was acquired by Intel in 2001.
Chris Schaepe, a founding general partner of Lightspeed Venture Partners, and Forest Baskett, a general partner at NEA, will hold seats on the Board of Directors.
