BittWare Acquires nCk Research, Forms Network Products Group
14/03/2017

CONCORD, NH – BittWare today announced the acquisition of nCk Research, a network solutions provider with a portfolio of FPGA intellectual property (IP) designed for BittWare’s PCIe boards. nCk’s staff joined BittWare as employees under a newly-formed Network Products group. Craig Lund, formerly with CSPI-Myricom, will lead BittWare Network Products as V.P. and General Manager.

The new group’s first product, based on nCk’s groundbreaking IP, will be announced at the RSA Conference next week in San Francisco.

“Building on the recent success of our horizontally-focused FPGA Platform business and the acquisition of nCk, it is huge step for BittWare to launch a vertically-focused network solutions group,” said Jeff Milrod, President & CEO of BittWare. “The addition of Craig’s leadership and extensive history of successfully driving new technology into emerging markets makes me confident that we will be able to quickly combine our world-class FPGA platforms with our innovative IP to deliver compelling network products to a market desperate for 100 GbE solutions.”

nCk Research had initially chosen BittWare’s FPGA solutions for prototyping their 100 Gbit/s IP. The unique approach and features of the IP so impressed BittWare that a collaboration was formed to accelerate the product development time. This grew into a need for closer access to BittWare’s software and hardware engineering teams, resulting in the acquisition in the second half of 2016.

Craig Lund joined BittWare in January, 2017 as V.P. and General Manager of the newly-formed Network Products group. Craig’s extensive knowledge of the capabilities—and limitations—of today’s high-speed network hardware and software plus his decades of experience leading teams in product development ensures the products BittWare creates are a match for the real-world needs of sophisticated, high-end network users.

The BittWare Network Products group combines the industry experience of Mr. Lund with the groundbreaking 100G networking capabilities from nCk Research. The first product line from the group will be announced and showcased at the RSA show next week.
