As we said last year, the number of candidate startups is increasing. Analog, MEMS and sensor companies are gaining in number and significance alongside the Internet of Things, and it has become limiting to stick to just 16 companies. So, we welcome 9 newcomers and hail 11 companies who remained from last year (see Analog, MEMS and sensor startups to follow in 2017).
The newcomers include companies active in energy harvesting. Hall effect magnetic, gas and vital signs sensors, hyperspectral imaging and spectrometry, analog EDA, ultrawideband RF sensing and imaging and low power wireless SoCs for the IoT.
Below are 20 startup companies we feel are worth keeping track of during 2018 listed in alphabetical order. New entries are highlighted in italic.
