EXTOLL develops its own semiconductor IP for network components as well as its own ASIC chips for high-performance computing (HPC). EXTOLL networks are direct networks that can be operated without external switches or hosts for computing nodes.
FMC is the provider of extremely efficient FeFET memory solutions for non-volatile storage. FeFET is ultra-low-power, high-performance, very dense, and extremely temperature stable. It will scale to transistor sizes ranging from 28nm to 5nm and below. The FMC team has been supported by “EXIST Forschungstransfer”, a program of the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy. The company is based in Dresden, Germany.
SciEngines offers massively parallel FPGA based Computers as a platform technology for Software vendors to accelerate their existing algorithms and software. Besides that SciEngines offers consulting services and services in porting third party software to their machines.
Synthara is a semiconductor AI company working on a new breed of edge-AI chips that eliminate the trade-off between performance and energy efficiency. Its technology is a result of years of interdisciplinary R&D in system architecture, neuroscience and neural networks at the Institute of Neuroinformatics (University of Zürich and ETH Zürich). Synthara's designs are hand-crafted for smart sensor applications whose computational workload is highly dynamic, such as wearables, IoT, and monitoring. The company has concluded an oversubscribed seed funding round and rallied a team of ambitious engineers, investors and ecosystem partners with deep roots in the industry. Synthara’s early adopter program is already seeing interest from a number of market leaders towards a first set of products in 2022.
Twenty-One Semiconductors GmbH was founded in 2019 as a spin-off of the Institute of Semiconductor Optics and Functional Interfaces (IHFG) at the University of Stuttgart. The company produces and markets a completely new type of laser crystals that can be used to efficiently generate laser radiation in the visible spectral range.
The underlying MEXL technology enables laser manufacturers to realize a new generation of laser sources for biomedical applications to obtain more detailed information when analysing cell and tissue samples.
