Movidius, Computational Cameras and Vision Processors

movidius.comIt seems we catch up with Movidius every three years or so, which is a good things as it means the company is still chugging along and turning out new and innovative silicon. We first encountered Movidius in 2008 when the company was called Movidia. Our last coverage was back in 2011 when the company raised $9M in Series C funding. and at which point the companies chips were targeted at 3D capture and video editing on mobile devices. A few years later, in June of 2013, the company has once again succeeded in raising more funding, this time securing a nice $16M in funding from Draper Fisher Jurvetson, Altantic Bridge, Capital-E, AIB Seed Capital Fund, and DFJ Esprit. Overall the company has now raised $46.5M in funding.

Quantance, Series D funding and forward progress

Quantance.comWe've covered many semiconductor startups over the years, many of which are nothing more than mere memories of ambitious undertakings. Fortunately, Quantance is not one of these companies, but rather one which has managed to flourish and acquire additional funding over time. We originally covered Quantance back in 2008 when the company raised $12 million in Series B funding, and followed up with more coverage in 2010 when the company raised an additional $11M in Series C funding. Earlier this month Quantance once again went back to the well and secured an additional $12M in Series D funding from existing investors TD Fund, DOCOMO Capital, Granite Ventures, and InterWest Partners.

kalray.euJust when it seemed that a simultaneous dual band 2.4/5 GHz router was a pretty good thing, there are a couple new standards just around the corner, namely 802.11ac and 802.11ad. The former operates in the 5GHz band and is in many ways considered the successor to the 802.11n standard. It implements a wider RF bandwidth of 80MHz (160MHz is optional) as compared to the 40MHz limit for 802.11n, multi-user MIMO, and high-density modulation which when all combined lead to a link rate of about 433 Mbits/s for a single antenna solution. Companies, such as Quantenna which we covered previously, have already released reference designs for 802.11ac.

semiconductor infographic: consolidating powers

Most of the time we either write about semiconductor startups or emerging technologies. But on occasion it can be interesting to take a look at what the big and established guys are doing, particularly when it is presented in a visually pleasing infographic courtesy of Farnell Semiconductors. As the infographic below shows, when it comes to the semiconductor industry, the sales leaders, which include Intel, Samsung, and TSMC, are growing significantly faster than the industry overall. Whereas these top three companies grew their revenue by a very healthy 12%, the overall industry managed a rather lackluster 2%. When it comes to countries, the USA and Taiwan did very well, while South Korea, Europe, and Japan lost market share over the last year - unfortunately the infographic does not contain information on China as it would be interesting to see if the growing fabless industry there has began to take market share from established players. There are several other statistics illustrated in the infographic which might be of interest as well including market share by company and capital expenditures - enjoy!
