MC10 Inc. is developing processes and applications that enable high performance electronics to be placed in novel environments and form factors. MC10’s approach transforms traditionally rigid, brittle semiconductors into flexible, stretchable electronics while retaining excellent electrical performance. Stretchable silicon allows for a degree of design freedom capable of expanding the functionality of existing products while providing a platform on which new microelectronic-enabled applications can be developed.

ZMOS Technology, Inc. has developed and proven with silicon chips a revolutionary circuit technology, Z-Technology™, which solves major challenges facing semiconductor companies in low power mobile marketplaces. Traditionally, higher speed devices require more power; and the movement to more advanced process technologies results in higher leakage current. With Z-Technology circuitry and design techniques, higher speed and lower power products with 1,000X less standby leakage current can be developed.
