HMicro and Gadgeon have been associated for many years now, and it is noteworthy that HMicro’s software work is almost completely handled by Gadgeon. The association started as a small demo project even before HMicro had any engineering staff, and then moved to a temporary staffing engagement which eventually impressed HMicro’s management to consider their role in a more long term relationship. Gadgeon’s hunger to be associated with a product company in a more meaningful way, and HMicro’s quest in both technology and new-age semiconductor startup economics, met with a good match between the two companies. Needless to say, this has happened after a strong foundation laid by the initial members of Gadgeon in terms of their technical abilities to quickly bring up the software to life, and also the strong continued belief in HMicro’s roadmap.
Aravind and Girish are at the fore-front of all software activities, including some customer interactions. The level of interaction with the HMicro team is the same as between HMicro employees, and there has never been any curtain of restricted information between the team members. Even though modern semi-conductor companies employ as many, or sometimes even more, software engineers as their VLSI and System Engineers, Gadgeon has impressed upon HMicro to be both part of the team and the risk.
It has been absolute pleasure to partner with Gadgeon. At C3, we have worked with Hari and his team on a variety of projects that have yielded exceptional results. From l
