Yes, same company. Xceed was the enhanced products divison of Micron.
It was bought a number of years ago by a contract manufacturer
called PG Design. I came on board and worked on a
a couple of projects. Our final one, before the parent company was
sold and shortly went under, was the Xceed Colorfusion.
Aahh..an ICDP-II. This was actually a storm compression card for
photoshop. Twin AT&T DSP's. Cool card, I have one of the
original prototypes from the project.
