MIT LCS Professor Anant Agarwal started Tilera, located in Massachusetts and just down the street in Silicon Valley, to develop “programmable ASICs and associated compilers”. They seem to still be in stealth mode, since their web site is content-free.

Tilera (Santa Clara, Calif.) was founded by Anant Agarwal, professor of engineering and computer science at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Agarwal serves as chief technology officer at Tilera. The company is run by Bessemer operating partner Devesh Garg, who serves as chief executive officer.
