Greg Waite, CEO of InventionShare™, announced today that Circuit Seed™, a new family of circuit building blocks for processing analog signals using fully digital components is big news for the delegates who attended Austin’s big tech show, especially with the two big technologies virtual reality (VR) and the internet of things (IOT).
Mr. Waite said, “Circuit Seed is unique in that it has an impact on everything – wearables, virtual reality, gaming and the IoT. With Circuit Seed, we see the VR space evolving into medical applications. When we think of virtual reality, one of the first things people think of is gaming and being a part of synthetic 3D worlds created by others. One of the more compelling uses of VR is to actually explore hidden worlds that are real. One of these worlds is the human body and, specifically, the electrical activity that takes place in our nervous system and how it gets impaired by disease, injury, diet, hormones and toxins.”
Mr. Waite also said that in order to get the power and the size needed for a number of products in the gaming, wearables and the IoT space, manufacturers are going to need to make big strides in converting analog circuits into a digital processes which are easier to work with, can be reduced in size and don’t use as much power. And those are the areas where Circuit Seed can make a big difference.
Circuit Seed inventions are founded on a mixture of decades of experience and creativity, supported by a robust portfolio of IP. Circuit Seed introduces a dramatic shift in the existing way of designing analog circuits, effectively eliminating many of the known shortcomings. Benefits include: unprecedented precision without precision parts; ultra-linear operation over an extreme dynamic range (>106); low noise, ultrahigh speed (analog at logic speed) and extreme low voltage (down to ~0.1V power supply); process parameter independence; compact footprint (amplifiers about the size of a couple of NAND gates); low power (~100uW for multi-GHz-range operation down to 10pW for KHz-range operation); and portable designs between ultra-deep sub-µm CMOS technology process nodes. This paradigm shift has eliminated the use of current mirrors or differential matched pairs with traditional bulky analog transistors while being able to recover from sleep mode at logic speed.
Simulation and silicon test results have demonstrated a dramatic reduction in power, better performance and higher accuracy, all with small integrated circuit footprints. The circuit designs are much simpler, reducing product costs with faster development, so less testing is required and there are fewer parts to assemble. These circuits are far more reliable in the newest CMOS processes, making Circuit Seed a real breakthrough companies in the IoT, wearable and virtual reality space.
“We have a unique opportunity to work with manufacturers of circuits, semiconductors, electronics, IoT and virtual reality products to make a difference to the consumer user experience and develop truly unique technology that can have positive impact on people and planet,” said Mr. Waite.
InventionShare is now looking for strategic partners who want to incorporate Circuit Seed technology into their future products or for more near term product offerings, with the benefit of leveraging market share, profitability through competitive feature set and manufacturing advantages.
