Carbonics aims to disrupt and revolutionize traditional electronics and semiconductors by employing carbon plus CMOS towards a single wireless chip.
Market:The rapidly expanding wireless, communications, defense and aerospace markets have significantly increased wireless traffic and created a need for next-generation radio frequency (RF) semiconductor solutions. Presently, single RF chips are not available in the market and there is a lack of wideband and linear 5G solutions. Carbonics intends to shake up the $20 billion compound semiconductor market that includes applications in WiGig (5G), IoT, Radars and Low Power Comms.
Technology:Carbonics is focused on developing and commercializing a carbon-on-wafer single chip solution that vastly improves the power consumption and performance of wireless products – including next generation smartphone and communication devices. By utilizing new physics and designs, Carbonics is able to ultra-align carbon nanotubes to achieve superior speed, razor linearity and low power while significantly reducing component costs.
