Analog, MEMS and sensor startups to follow in 2019: Page 4 of 5

January 02, 2019 // By Peter Clarke
We have renewed our list of analog, MEMS and sensor startups to follow, in the fifth annual iteration of our list.

Menlo Microsystems Inc. (Irvine, Calif.) was formed in 2016 to bring General Electric’s power handling MEMS microswitch technology to market. The ability to handle up to kilowatts of power enables applications in battery management, home-automation, electric vehicles, medical instrumentation, and wireless base stations, the company claims. www.menlomicro.com

(see Menlo moves MEMS switch process to Silex foundry)

 

Movellus Inc. (San Jose, Calif.) has launched itself on the market with a focus on the use of digital design and verification tools to implement analog circuit functionality. The company was formed in April 2014. In May 2018 Movellus announced it had received an undisclosed amount of funding from Intel. www.movellus.com

NuVolta Technologies Inc. (Milpitas, CA), a wireless power chip company startup that already has a number of chip designs under its belt, is now working with smartphone companies for the launch of custom chips. The company was founded in 2014 by a team of six engineers, of which many came from Texas Instruments. www.nuvoltatech.com

Prophesee AS (Paris, France), founded in 2014 as Chronocam, develops machine vision sensors based on asynchronous pixel sensor technology and biologically-inspired computer vision. Such systems can be optimized for low power, high dynamic range and low data rate rather than for resolution and a superior human-viewable image. Prophesee has entered into a strategic relationship with Nissan-Renault Group. www.prophesee.ai

(see Development board offered for event-based vision)

 

Senbiosys SA (Neuchatel, Switzerland), a 2017 spin-off from Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL), has developed a chip that can measure both heart rate, and oxygen level using both the photoplethysmography (PPG) and time-of-flight (ToF) signals. The chip also measures ambient light. www.senbiosys.com

(see Swiss startup claims low power PPG plus ToF sensor)
