About Us

InventionShare

InventionShare acts as a bridge between the creators of breakthrough inventions and the world-class technology companies that turn them into globally deployed, high-impact products and services having significant social value.

From an investor perspective, we function 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 history of creating successful commercial outcomes. Using an inventor-friendly, success-based model 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, human capital, industry and IP expertise, intelligence tools, process, diligence and discipline. 

By creating and managing Invention Companies instead of Operating Companies for accelerated and early financial exits, the focus is on the technology, human capital, and the associated IP protection with little or no product implementation or market adoption risk, or the cost or time delay associated with the creation of the operational infrastructure required for an operating company.

Circuit Seed

A new “Invention Company” created by InventionShare. Research into re-architecting the transistor led to the discovery of a breakthrough semiconductor platform technology, the Complementary Current-Injection Field-Effect Transistor (CiFET™), and the creation of Circuit Seed.

Development of circuits exploiting this technology has demonstrated analog functionality with extraordinary performance in digital technology on the same chip at the same process node – having unmatched configurability, portability and scalability enabling unprecedented design flexibility.

Circuit Seed’s technology will have a substantial impact on the global semiconductor industry. Important areas of application are: health and life sciences, wireless communications, autonomous vehicles, and logic (logic gates, GPU, CPU and data-bus).

Low Power Consumption

Often 80%+ less, smaller battery or extended battery life

Low Thermal Budget​

Low power consumption generates less heat, reducing the need for shielding and heat sinks​

Wide Temperature Range​​

80%+ plus circuits are insensitive to temperature which eliminates the need for correction circuitry

No Changes to Manufacturing Process​​

100% CMOS digital components and workflow with existing tools

Linear Performance​​​

Without correction circuitry – further reducing complexity, power consumption, size, development and cost

Tuneable Device​

Allows a change in the ratio of the width/length of the source and drain channel of the CiFET for different performance requirements, reducing complexity

Wide Bandwidth​​

Supports more applications and allows more flexibility for filtering

Small Size and Less Complexity​

Simplifies development and testing, reducing the requirement for senior analog designers

Scalable​​

Will work in all IC nodes including < 28nm

Less Cost​​​

NRE, development, testing, wafer size, higher yields, fewer BOM, higher reliability

CiFET

This circuit, device and platform can be tuned for specific applications by adjusting the width and length ratio between the source and drain channel.

This results in a cost advantage (NRE, less complexity, fewer BOM, smaller wafer size, increased yields, and better reliability). Our simulations and test results demonstrate high tolerance to extreme temperature variation, while operating at very low power and generating less heat.
