We are purposely designed as a small team of passionate engineers with a diverse set of skills. We are dedicated to achieving the most innovative ways to develop high performance, low cost and energy efficient x86 microprocessors.

As the demands in computing change, exciting challenges in machine learning, neural networking and Artificial Intelligence are at the forefront, guided by some of the industry’s smartest, challenge-seeking and technology thrill seekers who are not afraid to interrupt the norm.

At Centaur, we believe that if we hire the best and the brightest and provide an environment where they can connect with great people, unencumbered by bureaucracy, great ideas come to the surface through collaboration and the willingness to make the impossible possible.

Founded With A Dream

Centaur Technology was founded in 1995 by four engineers working out of a kitchen with one mission: to develop high performance, low cost, energy efficient x86 compatible microprocessors. In 1997, Centaur’s first processor, the IDT C6, came to market setting the stage for a processor that included two fundamental elements: A unique design developed from scratch and a unique engineering management approach designed to achieve high performance.

Heart of a Team

Centaur’s “People First” approach is what has launched over 26 major x86 microprocessor designs which have shipped to customers world-wide in systems offered by Samsung, Lenovo, HP, Dell and many others.
