ActLight: The future of light based electronics
ActLight SA is a fabless semiconductor company specialized in the design and intellectual property (IP) for light technologies for silicon chips, i.e. energy harvesting solutions based on solar, fiber-optics communications, optical sensing, etc.
The ActLight innovation comes from groundbreaking new innovation related to characteristics of CMOS electronics when exposed to light. The same was discovered by the ActLight team after working in the forefront of different CMOS technologies for many years. During 2010 we started validating our innovation with global semiconductor vendors, potential OEM partners and key industry experts. As result we currently own patented technologies in the area of fast light sensors and CMOS energy harvesting. We have completed simulation verifications and testchip validation, and presently we are discussing licensing schemes of our IP with leading technology partners. Our innovation has been well received in the electronics market since it address key areas the electronics industry looking or, like:
Faster electronics – In order to address the explosion in global data transfer, both for Internet switches and between computer peripherals.
Smaller solutions – To get more functionality in same volume, important
both for portable solutions and for electronics in data centers.
Power efficient technologies – To avoid or optimize batteries and also to address the problem of heat generation in some applications
Cheaper solutions – Above enhancements need to be achieved without increasing system cost.
Always connected – We enter the times of “Internet of Things” and everything needs to be connected, be it wireless sensors or consumer electronics.
