Silicon Catalyst, the world’s only incubator focused exclusively on accelerating semiconductor solutions, announces the admission of POLYN Technology into the semiconductor industry’s highly acclaimed program. POLYN Technology is an innovative provider of ultra-low-power-performance NASP (Neuromorphic Analog Signal Processing) solutions and a producer of unique Tiny AI chips and their associated IP.

POLYN’s NASP-based Tiny AI inference solutions are ideally suited for always-on smart devices performing sensor data pre-processing in a wide variety of Edge AI applications, including human health monitoring, hearing assistance, and machine condition monitoring.

“POLYN's mission is to collaborate with leading semiconductor vendors, industry partners and entrepreneurs to introduce next-generation sensor data pre-processing solutions for wearables, hearables, and Industrial IoT predictive maintenance. Our team of deep learning and chip design experts with experience in such industry giants as Cadence, Intel, LG, Marvell, Sony, and Tower Semiconductor, successfully released the first NASP Test Chip, demonstrating proof of the technology’s brain-mimicking architecture and tools. It is the first Tiny AI true analog design to be used next to sensors,” stated Aleksandr Timofeev, founder and CEO of POLYN. “By being part of the Silicon Catalyst Incubator and its broad portfolio of partners, we’ll accelerate our plans to improve cost, time to market and reach of our unique technology".

Silicon Catalyst provides critical support to semiconductor hardware startups as they move from idea through prototype to initial product. Since its founding in 2015, Silicon Catalyst has reviewed over 700 early-stage companies and has admitted 85 startups into the incubator.
"Silicon Catalyst's mission is to assist innovative semiconductor startups in their journey to success", added Moshe Zalcberg, Silicon Catalyst's General Partner in Israel. "POLYN offers a disruptive technology that has the potential to make a major impact in several key markets, and we're happy to partner with Aleksandr and his team in making this a reality".
