Cardea

Pioneering the Internet of Biology with BioMEMS

Cardea

The Genome Sensor is the world’s first DNA search engine and can google genomes for genetic mutations of interest. Powered by Cardea graphene biosensors and CRISPR-Chip™ technology, the Genome Sensor can to date detect sickle cell disease and Duchenne muscular disease, but will in the future be able to detect any mutation-based genetics disease.

Cartesiam

Making Sensors AI Smart is Easier Than You Think

Cartesiam

With Cartesiam's NanoEdge technology, clients can design intelligent objects that will automatically learn and understand. Cartesiam’s development software is used by developers who want to create AI models for Cortex M MCUs without having access to thorough datasets nor to trained Data scientists resources. Developers define their objects: hardware configuration, operation environment, and constraints. They will then get an optimized model selected across over 200 millions of possible algorithmic permutations. The resulting library will be embedded into the object's software code.

Motus Global

High Dynamic Range / Low Noise IMU to Prevent Tommy John Surgery

Motus Global

Motus Throw is a lab-accurate IMU embedded in a compression throwing sleeve for baseball pitchers. As the first-ever wearable technology approved by Major League Baseball for in-game use in 2015, the Motus Throw measures the torque placed on the Ulnar Collateral Ligament during every throw. Motus’ high-dynamic range and low-noise IMU then gives players, performance staff, and medical staff valuable workload and fatigue insights into players throwing regimen.

Syntiant

Sensing the World with the Syntiant Neural Decision Processor

Syntiant

The Syntiant NDP architecture is purpose-built for deep learning algorithms. The NDP100 achieves breakthrough performance through highly coupled computation and memory, exploiting the inherent parallelism of deep learning, and computing at only required precision. The devices achieve approximately 100x efficiency improvement over stored-program architectures such as CPUs and DSPs. Processing speech, the NDP consumes less than 200 μW with continuous full recognition while meeting AVS close-talk accuracy requirements.
