CAESAREA, Israel, September 29, 2022 – POLYN Technology, a provider of innovative Neuromorphic Analog Signal Processing technology and ultra-low-power Tiny AI chips for sensor applications, announced today its acceptance to Silicon Catalyst, a unique semiconductor incubator headquartered in the Silicon Valley.
As part of the incubation program, POLYN will have access to a wealth of semiconductor process technology, IP, and EDA tools, along with expert services and guidance by Silicon Catalyst’s extensive network of partners and advisors. This is expected to accelerate engagements with product vendors and semiconductor companies focusing on neuromorphic analog IC development and embedded systems for the Health 4.0 and Industry 4.0 segments.
The collaboration also broadens POLYN’s opportunities related to industry infrastructure and enables the company to better engage the market to integrate its innovative technology and cooperate with new partners for the next generation of sensor nodes, according to Aleksandr Timofeev, founder and CEO of POLYN.
POLYN’s NASP (Neuromorphic Analog Signal Processing)-based Tiny AI inference solutions are ideally suited for always-on smart devices performing sensor data pre-processing in a wide variety of Edge AI applications, including human health monitoring, hearing assistance, and machine condition monitoring.
“POLYN’s mission is to collaborate with leading semiconductor vendors, industry partners, and entrepreneurs to introduce next-generation sensor solutions for wearables, hearables, and IIoT predictive maintenance. Our team of deep learning and chip design experts with experience in such industry giants as Cadence, Intel, LG, Marvell, Sony, and Tower Semiconductor, successfully released the first NASP Test Chip, demonstrating proof of the technology’s brain-mimicking architecture and tools. It is the first Tiny AI true analog design to be used next to sensors,” Timofeev said. “By being part of the Silicon Catalyst community and its huge portfolio of partners, we expect to accelerate our plans to improve cost, time to market and reach of our unique technology.”
“Silicon Catalyst’s mission is to assist innovative semiconductor startups in their journey to success,” added Moshe Zalcberg, Silicon Catalyst’s General Partner in Israel. “POLYN offers a disruptive technology that will make a major impact in several key markets, and we’re happy to partner with Aleksandr and his team in making this a reality.”
