Cell Matrix was founded in 1999 by Nicholas Macias and Lisa Durbeck. The company is located in Blacksburg, Virginia, U.S.A. with satellite operations in Portland, Oregon, U.S.A.


Cell Matrix develops complete systems: hardware, logic, circuits, low-level software, algorithms, high-level software and programming interfaces, and user interfaces. Many Cell Matrix solutions exploit a fine-grained, uniform dispersal of

dynamic interpretation and storage system-wide, for gains in productive work per unit of hardware and per unit of time, and for significant reductions in communication latencies; other projects use commercial COTS technology.


software engineering, hardware design, configurable computing, logic and circuit design, algorithms optimized for specific hardware, and analytics for various domains. Additional expertise in user interface design and mechanical engineering.
