Greg Waite CEO of InventionShare™ announced today that Circuit Seed™, a new family of circuit building blocks for processing analog singles using fully digital components and design flow are now able to significantly improve functionally of cell phone offerings from all manufacturers. The attached graphic shows the impact of Circuit Seed on a smart phone.
Speaking from his Ottawa office, Mr. Waite said this breakthrough is significant and is a game changer for the cell phone industry. Circuit Seed’s new foundation inventions can extend battery life, extend signal quality and range, increase screen sensitivity, reduce the number of circuits, provide better screen resolution, and provide high fidelity audio integrity.
“What we have here is a major breakthrough for the cell phone industry and a real game changer for manufacturers who want to make their hand sets and phones stand out in the crowded “me too” cell phone market. By integrating digital circuits processing analog signals that are low power there is an opportunity to satisfy the large segments of the consumer and business markets that just want a much better experience” said Mr. Waite
Circuit Seed inventions are founded from a mixture of decades of experience and creativity, supported by a robust portfolio of IP. Circuit Seed introduces a dramatic shift in the existing way of designing analog circuits effectively eliminating many of the known shortcomings. This includes: unprecedented precision without precision parts; ultra-linear operation over an extreme dynamic range (>106); low noise, ultrahigh speed (analog at logic speed) and extreme low voltage (down to ~0.1V power supply); process parameter independence; compact footprint (amplifiers about the size of a couple of NAND gates); low power (~100uW for multi-GHz-range operation down to 10pW for KHz-range operation); portable designs between ultra-deep sub-µm CMOS technology process nodes. This paradigm shift has eliminated the use of current mirrors or differential matched pairs with traditional bulky analog transistors while being able to recover from sleep mode at logic speed.
Simulation and silicon test results have demonstrated a dramatic reduction in power, better performance and higher accuracy, all with small integrated circuit footprints. The circuit designs are much simpler, reducing product costs with faster development, so less testing is required and there are fewer parts to assemble. These circuits are far more reliable in the newest CMOS processes, making Circuit Seed a real breakthrough for phone manufacturers.
Mr. Waite said “Semiconductor companies are always looking for ways to support Manufacturers’ ever increasing demands to make products that are smaller, lighter, faster – products that consume less power, give off less heat and that are easier, quicker and less expensive to design, manufacture and test. They want products with fewer parts that offer higher reliability and lower total product costs.” Circuit Seed provides all these competitive advantages.
InventionShare is now looking for strategic partners who want to incorporate Circuit Seed technology into their product offerings leveraging market share, profitability through competitive feature set and manufacturing advantages.
