Transmeta

(Transmeta Corporation, Santa Clara, CA) A semiconductor firm founded in 1995 to produce low-power x86-based CPU chips. In 2000, the Crusoe processor debuted, and the Efficeon chips came out in 2003, which offered greater performance. Its chip designs were licensed to several companies and used in various devices. In 2009, Transmeta licensed its designs to NVIDIA and was acquired by Novafora, which ceased operations that same year. See Crusoe processor.
