XMOS was formed in 2005, when a small team assembled to create a fast and flexible microcontroller that would enable designers to respond quickly to diversifying market demand. The first (XS1) and second (xcore-200) generation processors combined software-based I/O capability with digital signal processing (DSP) and control processing. Thus establishing the XMOS reputation in the audio sector.

The company vision then shifted towards AI. Caught between two very different technical and commercial models, Graphcore was formed to focus on server-side AI while XMOS continued the quest towards embedded intelligence (edge-AI). Most recently, XMOS enabled voice applications to become mainstream by releasing the XVF3510 providing a far-field 2-microphone voice interface. This was followed up with the xcore.ai processor for the AIoT that integrates AI, DSP, control, and I/O.
