ISORG in the 2015 EETimes start-ups to watch
Once again, ISORG has been by the Electronics Engineering Times as one of the 15 analog, MEMS and sensor start-ups to watch in 2015.
"Here are fifteen startups that are eager to change the world of electronics and that we think are worth keeping an eye on in 2015 if you are interested in analog, MEMS and sensors.
The blossoming of the sector may be to do with the general buoyancy of the total global semiconductor market, which looks set to achieve close to a 10 percent year-on-year growth in value in 2014 and to the fact that analog, MEMS and sensor activities seem to be doing slightly better than the overall average. Certainly the proliferation of sensors within mobile handsets seems to be an encouraging development. There is not only scope for a greater number of more sophisticated sensors in such equipment but also for the same or similar sensors to appear broadly across other equipment from automotive to industrial and medical.
The latest batch of newcomers includes companies active in inertial, image and chemical sensors as well as depth perception and gesture recognition. And if the list seems skewed away from the purely analog – it possibly reflects the fact that there appears to be greater value to add at a lower cost of entry in the more application-specific area of sensors.
Isorg SA (Grenoble, France), founded in 2010 as a spin-off from CEA-LITEN, converts plastic and glass surfaces into smart surfaces through the application of printed, organic optoelectronic sensors. The possibility of 3D product integration allows the recognition of many shapes and form factors. The company name is a contraction of Image Sensor ORGanic"
