Jan 23, 2019

Liquid Instruments , the San Diego, CA-based developer of Moku:Lab, a software-configurable hardware platform for precision test and measurement and advanced digital signal processing, raised $8.16m in Series A funding.­ The round was led by US-based Anzu Partners and includes follow-on investor ANU Connect Ventures in Australia.
