Greg Waite, CEO of InventionShare, announced today a world-wide agreement with the inventors of Circuit Seed™ and will be adding it to its inventions portfolio.
Circuit Seed is a revolutionary new way of processing analog signals using digital components and analog circuits made with digital parts which allows for the processing of analog signals in deep sub-micron feature size. Circuit Seed also allows for faster and more reliable development, with reusable reference designs, reducing testing time and expense.
“This is a big breakthrough in the transformation and transition of technology,” said Mr. Waite. “With the internet of things expected to be 6 billion devices by 2020 analog will still be a required technology, so anything that can be done to reduce the size and the cost of integrating analog and digital will have a huge impact in allowing manufacturers to continue to keep pace with the development and size of future products.”
Circuit Seed’s new circuit designs improve speed and reduce the density of the circuit board by 20% or more, allowing for major size reductions in boards. Circuit Seed circuits are 100% scalable and easier to port to new platforms – fewer logic devices means reduced manufacturing costs.
Analog components use up to 70% less power which allows either longer battery life or a smaller battery and less power, which also translates into less heat, extending product life.
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.
