Smart energy solutions
Ambiq Micro products are redefining the meaning of ultra-low power integrated circuits. The company’s proprietary SPOT™ design platform dramatically reduces energy consumed in standard CMOS chip designs to subthreshold levels – up to orders of magnitude below the power required in today’s traditional semiconductor product designs. Significantly increased battery life frees product designers to expand the features and functions incorporated in their products and exceed battery life requirements. Ambiq Micro’s products inherently change the design and use of energy critical products used in consumer, industrial, automotive and medical applications.

Innovative Silicon, Inc. (ISi) is a fast-growing, venture-backed company that develops and licenses Z-RAM - the world's densest, lowest-cost memory technology. Z-RAM which stands for Zero-Capacitor DRAM is a direct replacement for today's DRAM technologies and is ideal for complex Systems-on-Chip (SoC), microprocessors, and stand-alone DRAMs. Innovative Silicon has harnessed the floating body effect of SOI semiconductor devices to develop memory cells that are twice as dense as existing DRAM and five times as dense as existing SRAM. Innovative Silicon proprietary memory technology, called Z-RAMTM (for Zero capacitor DRAM), uses a standard SOI logic processes without new materials or extra process or masking steps. For most SOC and Microprocessor ICs, this results in SOI being a lower-cost solution than bulk silicon.
