Analog, MEMS and Sensor startups to follow in 2021
We have renewed our list of analog, MEMS and sensor startups to follow, in the seventh annual iteration of the list. Below are 20 startups to follow in 2021.

Lunewave Inc. (Tuscon, Ariz.), a 2017 startup developing antenna and radar sensor technology for use in self-driving vehicles and other applications, has raised $5 million in seed funding. Lunewave uses 3D printing to create a so-called Luneburg lens antenna. A Luneburg lens is spherically symmetric with a refractive index that decreases radially from the center to the outer surface.  This produces a spherical sensor with a 360-degree field of view that Lunewave is proposing to be used with radar in self-driving vehicles.

MixComm Inc. (Chatham, New Jersey) is a millimeter wave antennas to algorithms company developing transformative solutions for emerging wireless applications and markets. MixComm was co-founded in 2017 by Dr. Harish Krishnaswamy of Columbia University’s Engineering School and Frank Lane, formerly Senior Director at Flarion Technologies and Vice President of Technology for Qualcomm.

Movellus Inc. (San Jose, Calif.) has launched itself on the market with a focus on the use of digital design and verification tools to implement analog circuit functionality. The company was formed in April 2014. In May 2018 Movellus announced it had received an undisclosed amount of funding from Intel.

Newsight Imaging Ltd. (Ness Ziona, Israel), is a developer of CMOS image sensor chips for 3D vision and spectral analysis. The company uses CMOS to combine image sensor pixels, A-to-D conversion and digital processing monolithically to make time-of-flight distance calculations. It makes line and area sensors with resolution up to about 640 by 400 pixels that can be used for distance sensing in a line and distance and such applications as facial recognition. The company was founded in 2016.

ProteanTecs Ltd. (Haifa, Israel) has proposed the use of software agents embedded in chips to monitor integrated circuits and predict failures. The proposed technology makes use of artificial intelligence, analytics on-chip and cloud-based services to monitor and predict reliability of the chip throughout its life. The technology is also of use at the system and service level. The company was founded in 2017.
