A semiconductor technology company spun out of RTI International last year has raised $3 million in funding.
siXis, formerly known as Beeco, raised the money from Durham venture-capital firm Intersouth Partners and RTI. Those original investors also provided siXis with $5 million in funding last year.
"Their support is critical to the continued growth of the company," said CEO John Goehrke, in a prepared statement. Goehrke joined the company as a consultant after RTI officials approached Intersouth about financing a spinoff.
