Si Catalyst adds six startups

The ecosystem that Silicon Catalyst has created lowers the capital expenses associated with the design and fabrication of silicon-based IC’s, Sensors, and MEMS devices by providing tools and services from a comprehensive network of In-Kind Partners (IKPs).

The Portfolio Companies in the incubator utilize IKP tools and services including design tools, simulation software, design services, foundry PDK access and MPW runs, test program development, tester access, and banking and legal services.

AlphaICs designs and develops the AI co-processors for delivering  AI compute on edge devices including inference with learning.

Lelantos  is developing IoT compatible gas sensors targeted at threat detection, industrial safety, environmental and air quality monitoring and medical diagnostics.

Oculi makes the SPU Sensing and Processing Unit which is a complete edge vision system on a chip with power, bandwidth and latency benefits.

Salience Labs is building a hybrid photonic-electronic chip for AI based on amassively parallel, ultra-high throughput Photonic Tensor Processing Unit which allows data to be modulated at up to 100 GHZ, and allows for high levels of parallelisation using multiplexing.

Sonical is building the world’s first ear computer running EarOS to give everyone  a personalised hearing experience and to control how they hear the world using AI and advanced audio processing.

Visual Dawn is developing a contact lens based AR hardware platform that relies upon the same hydrogel material used for corrective vision contact and is enabled by a biocompatible battery that eliminates the need for toxic electrolyte solution and electrode materials.
