INCUBATING BIG IDEAS IN THE NANO WORLD
14Si Solutions Inc
Contamination Control is a critical need in the semiconductor manufacturing ecosystem enabling higher yields and performance reliability of semiconductor devices. As unknown, untraced and (often) uncharacterized contamination percolates through this ecosystem from the raw material to end use on-wafer, the financial and societal costs escalate exponentially.
14Si Solutions, an “Applications Engineering as a Service” focused startup, provides a niche, end-to-end services platform to identify, quantify, trace, and mitigate contamination at the source. Here, we leverage our extensive background in the 4M’s (Materials, Metrology, Manufacturing, & Methodology) of contamination control to improve products from and processes at component, chemical, and tool suppliers, to further enable semiconductor device manufacturers.
Agnit Semiconductors is deep-tech startup from the Indian Institute of Science, offering Gallium Nitride (GaN) components for next-generation communication networks for 5G, and efficient power switches for electric vehicle fast charging, etc. Agnit’s team has 100 years of experience in developing GaN solutions from materials-to-devices-to-systems.
Theranautilus is a hardware company specializing in instruments for fabricating nanorobots, safe deployment of nanorobots in living systems, and mechanisms to maneuver them to their target inside the body remotely. Our system would be capable of reaching greater depths within the dentinal tissues to target bacterial colonies that are out of reach with the current state of the art tools.
INFAB is a foundry service aimed at making MEMS-based devices available for everyone - “From students to a practicing engineer to research labs to start-ups to MNCs engaged in MEMS-based activities”. We envision “MEMS for everyone” and are motivated to benefit our users at large by providing microfabrication of MEMS and Microfluidic devices at affordable cost with quick turn-around time. The services help the users with technical supports such as design feasibility, characterization and packaging.
A first of its kind - disruptive device that can handle biological problems and material science problems in fluid in real-time at the single-molecule level. We call this device UNanoD – Universal Nanofluidic Devices. UNanoD will be a standard (like USB) that will be established with existing specifications for various optical microscopes, electron microscopes, and electronics to interface between one nanoscopic measurement device to another.
