SiBEAM, Inc., Recognized by EE Times As Emerging Startup To Watch for Fourth Consecutive Year
Sunnyvale, Calif. – February 10, 2009 – SiBEAM, Inc., a leading innovator of millimeter wave (mmWave) solutions and developer of high-speed wireless communications platforms, has again been selected as one of 60 companies in version 8.0 of the EE Times Emerging Startups list. This is the fourth year SiBEAM has been featured on the prestigious EE Times Emerging Startup List. SiBEAM was selected by EE Times editors based on a mix of criteria including: technology, intended market, maturity, financial position and investment profile.
A founding member of the WirelessHDTM Consortium, SiBEAM’s first products are based on the WirelessHDTM 1.0 specification and are available now. The company’s groundbreaking Omnilink60-based WirelessHD chipsets will be used for end-to-end wireless high-definition digital video display, without compression or buffering. These products provide the lowest cost and highest quality wireless video solution for consumer electronics and display applications. Future applications of SiBEAM’s millimeter wave technology may include wireless personal area network devices for portable connectivity and synch and go applications, virtual docking for laptops, as well as automotive radar.
SiBEAM was the first to break the barriers of 60 GHz technology in 2005 with the development of working 60GHz chipsets for home multimedia applications, built using standard CMOS manufacturing techniques. In June 2007, SiBEAM exited stealth mode and announced its vision to transform the wireless landscape by enabling multi-gigabit wireless applications at higher frequencies with its unprecedented OmniLink60TM wireless intelligent antenna technology.
Other startups included on the list include companies involved in semiconductor chips, memory, MEMS, EDA software, foundry manufacturing, semiconductor production equipment, electronics subsystems, packaging and materials, selected by EE Times editors.
