ISSCC 2019 Conference, San Francisco 17-21 February 2019
OTTAWA, ON, February 20, 2019 /24-7PressRelease/ — Circuit Seed is a seminal, breakthrough platform technology that significantly improves circuit designs for new and existing products, with an emphasis on sensors and wireless communications. The platform is founded on a substantial patent and trade secret portfolio, and has been heavily simulated and responsibly validated with printed circuits (that match the simulations).
“Obsolescence sounds like a frightening word when, in fact, it’s a natural, productive and evolutionary process to replace older circuit technologies with more advanced and improved technologies that are people and planet friendly,” said Greg Waite, CEO of InventionShare. “Our purpose is not to wipe out old technologies but, rather, to provide a transition from the world of analog to the far superior world of digital. This transition is long overdue.”
In that spirit, InventionShare’s portfolio client, Circuit Seed, is proud to announce its partnership programs for its CiFET (Complementary Current Field-Effect Transistor) family of analog in digital circuits under their respective brand names:
• Sensory Seed™ for Health and Life Sciences
• Sensors in Motion™ for Automotive, Transportation, Logistics and Robotics
• 5Bars Wireless™ for Full Duplex Frequency Agile Low Noise Communications
• CoreLogika™ for Logic Gates, CPU and GPU Advancement plus Enhanced BUS Performance
Special purpose joint venture opportunities are possible across these four primary markets and are open to OEMs, semiconductor companies and corporate ventures. More specifically, new and promising inventions that are impaired by analog are preferred partner opportunities. In such cases, the analog circuitry can be replaced with digital equivalents, offering large improvements (some by an order of magnitude or more) in attractive global market use cases.
Circuit Seed’s analog in digital technology requires less power, provides better performance in a smaller area and at lower costs. Reduced costs include less non-recurring engineering, less testing, less wafer space, higher yields and smaller BOMs (bill of materials).
For semiconductor companies, this translates into developing new products faster and at less cost, with LEGO-like simplicity that can include sensors and sensor interfaces to address hundreds of market opportunities.
For OEMs it means greater customer satisfaction, longer battery life, greater accuracy, higher reliability (lower recall risk), smaller devices – and all of that with a lower cost of goods sold.
Circuit Seed is one of those rare platform technologies that will dramatically grow the semiconductor and OEM electronics market places by providing critically important analog in digital, coupled with logic and bus speed improvements, at lower cost but with significantly higher volumes.
“Industry advancement is being held hostage by analog and its overwhelmingly complex workarounds to make it fit into the world of small, fast, cheap, low power applications. From lab on a chip to autonomous vehicles through to 5G wireless, analog is consistently the engineering impediment. In logic domain intensive applications such as AI, virtual reality, data centers and edge computing are all demanding higher performance at lower cost per throughput – offsetting ‘out of control’ energy consumption and worsening environmental impacts,” added Waite.
About Circuit Seed
Circuit Seed enables a new portable family of building block circuit designs for processing low power analog signals in an all-digital domain. It is based on a new Complementary Current Field-Effect Transistor (the CiFET) with a channel fusion for fully integrating analog functionality with unique properties while eliminating separate analog chips and external components on the circuit board. Noise is markedly reduced, and sensitivities are considerably increased. The CiFET designs use 100% digital transistor channels to overcome many traditional analog restrictions – including parametric variations and temperature sensitivities. The designs provide an ultra-linear response over an extended dynamic range and the capability of operating at low supply voltages below 800mV with low power consumption at any threshold voltage.
InventionShare functions as a perpetual and exclusive ‘Breakthrough Invention Fund’ that creates and develops ‘Invention Companies’ rather than high risk ‘Operating Companies’. This approach dramatically accelerates the adoption of breakthrough technologies by augmenting the innovation pipeline of large global companies – for extraordinary financial outcomes and high social impact. We do this by attracting and representing credible senior inventors with a track record, through our ‘inventor friendly’ success-based model, and we support, amplify, protect and validate their seminal inventions with non-dilutive financial capital – in stark contrast to operating companies. The dramatic financial and social leverage we achieve is through our deep and distinct intellectual and relationship capital, industry and IP expertise, intelligence tools, process, diligence and discipline.
