ISORG in EETimes list of Emerging Start-ups


EE Times updates 'Silicon 60' list of emerging startups
Peter Clarke

"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 3-D product integration allows the recognition of many shapes and form factors.
The company name is a contraction of Image Sensor ORGanic"

EE Times has updated the Silicon 60, its list of 60 notable emerging startup companies, to version 13.0 with the inclusion of 18 companies.

The full list has been selected by editors based on a mix of criteria including: technology, intended market, company maturity, financial position, investment profile and executive leadership. The 18 newcomers to the list were founded during the period 2005 to 2010. Geographically they come mainly from the U.S. (12 companies) with 4 startups out of Europe and one from each of Israel and India.

These startups are demonstrating their potential in fields that range from micro- and macro-energy conversion through energy storage to more-than-Moore disciplines including clocking, timing and MEMS. Other disciplines represented in the additions to the Silicon 60 include compound semiconductor materials and processes, optical-on-CMOS and embedded electronic systems level (ESL) development. Recent startups focused on many-core processing, solid-state memory and 60-GHz communications have also been added to the list as companies that EE Times editors believe are startups worth keeping an eye on.
