EvoNexus, GLOBALFOUNDRIES to Accelerate Growth of Wireless and IoT Startups


Reading time ( words)

EvoNexus, a leading non-profit technology incubator, and GLOBALFOUNDRIES, the world’s leading specialty semiconductor foundry, announced their collaboration to accelerate the growth of semiconductor startups developing breakthrough products in wireless and the Internet of Things (IoT). EvoNexus has extensive history and success incubating startups across the wireless ecosystem.

GF provides a broad range of platforms and features with a unique mix of design, development and fabrication services. As one of the leading innovators of SOI-based technology, GF’s solutions deliver greater bandwidth, ultra-low power, higher levels of integration, and lower latency for scalable and reliable applications that are fundamental to smart, connected IoT and wireless connectivity markets. Specifically, GF and their customers, along with the products they develop, will have a foundational impact on the emerging global 5G ecosystem. Through access to this technical expertise and these cutting-edge technologies, EvoNexus’ partners will be further empowered to develop new solutions and will speed their time to market.

“We are excited to collaborate with EvoNexus to drive innovation and bring disruptive products to market,” said Dr. Bami Bastani, senior vice president and general manager of Mobile and Wireless Infrastructure at GF. "EvoNexus’ proven incubation program and corporate partnerships that include Qualcomm, Murata, pSemi, TDK InvenSense and Viasat, coupled with GF's differentiated, feature rich solutions will enable promising semiconductor startups to build innovative products that will help connect and power the digital world."

“5G, IoT, Telemedicine, Industry 4.0, AI, Smart Homes and AgTech represent opportunities where an early stage venture can establish a beachhead in nascent markets,” said Dr. Jim Cable, CTO of EvoNexus. “The GlobalFoundries and EvoNexus collaboration will provide innovators with differentiated solutions, while reducing the cost of product development and speed time to a market window that is fleeting.”

“GlobalFoundries manufacturing and technology access provides a key element as EvoNexus launches an outreach to locate and assist early stage semiconductor ventures regardless of their location,” said Rory Moore, CEO and Co-founder of EvoNexus and Co-founder of Peregrine Semiconductor & Silicon Wave. “Access to high quality chip manufacturing has never been more difficult with the major OEMs consuming most of the global capacity. GlobalFoundries recognizes that semiconductor design innovation often comes from a startup. EvoNexus and GlobalFoundries provide an ideal partnership for breakthrough designs that make IoT and 5G a reality.”

My View from CES 2021: Day 1

01/12/2021 | Dan Feinberg, Technology Editor, I-Connect007
What a difference a year makes. One year ago, those of us who cover and attend CES were going from one press conference to the next; this year, we are at home going from link to link. Confusing and challenging, yes, but there are some advantages: no masks, only five steps to get to a restroom, being able to have three of four events or more displaying on your screens at the same time and being able to download press kits as needed. So far, many new devices are being introduced, but of course, they are all online, so you wonder if some of them really exist or are truly operational as yet.

CES 2021: Just How Different Will It Be?

01/11/2021 | Dan Feinberg, I-Connect007
CES 2021 starts today and this year there is no need for an overpriced hotel room in Vegas, no long lines to get a taxi or board a bus, and no crowded exhibit halls (one good thing this year). On the other hand, you must decide ahead of time what you want to see and make a reservation or appointment if you wish to have time and access assured.

CES 2020: The Intelligence of Things

01/06/2020 | Nolan Johnson, I-Connect007
Show week for CES 2020 starts well ahead of the actual exhibition dates because it is huge. The organizers of CES state that there are more than 4,400 exhibiting companies and nearly three million net square feet of exhibit space. On the floor, you can find 307 of the 2018 Fortune Global 500 companies. Over the week, I-Connect007 Editors Dan Feinberg and Nolan Johnson will bring you some of the most interesting news, products, and announcements from 5G to IoT, semiconductor developments, autonomous vehicle technology, interconnect, fabrication materials, and much more.
