To establish the credibility of boundary logic tools, I thought it necessary to use them to solve difficult, commercially valuable, problems. The most difficult application problem turned out to be the optimization of large digital circuits. So a business colleague and I started this company, BTC, with a business plan of applying boundary math to Electronic Design Automation.

My role was strictly as technical Chief Scientist: the first decision that Management made was to usurp my name for the new Company (yuck!).

Over three years, BTC generated both software and hardware business plans, raised $500K, and looked like a survivable technical start-up. Success, however, seems to be dominated by the whims of the world. Our first meeting with investors was the same day that some terrorists decided to make a statement in New York. Oh, and the technology bubble burst. BTC closed in early 2005.
