EE Times introduces v17.1 of the Silicon 60 list of emerging companies.

-- Sp to Su --

Spin Transfer Technologies Inc. (Boston, Mass.) was established by Allied Minds and New York University in 2007 to develop and commercialize its Orthogonal Spin Transfer magnetoresistive random access memory technology, OST-MRAM. The technology, invented by Professor Andrew Kent, is an innovation in the field of spin-transfer-based MRAM devices. www.spintransfer.com

Standing Egg Co. Ltd. (Seoul, Korea) was founded in May 2013 and develops MEMS sensor products including accelerometers, gyroscopes, pressure sensors, and others. www.standing-egg.co.kr

Stratio Inc. (Menlo Park, Calif.), founded in 2013, is developing low-cost germanium (Ge) based short wavelength infrared (SWIR) image sensors suitable for use in mobile devices. Stratio’s sensor utilizes a proprietary hybrid process that combines selective Ge epitaxial growth with established Si CMOS technology to overcome the limitations of conventional InGaAs-based SWIR sensors. www.stratiotechnology.com

StoreDot Ltd. (Ramat Gan, Israel) was founded in 2011 to develop products and technology around peptide—based organic quantum dot materials. These nanometer-scale crystals have physical dimensions so small that quantum mechanics affect the electro-optic properties. The materials are tunable and the range of behaviors is wide, offering potential applications in displays, non-volatile memories, image sensors and batteries. www.store-dot.com

SureCore Ltd. (Sheffield, England) SureCore is a 2011 spin-off from Glasgow University and is working on memory IP at 28nm and smaller critical dimensions in FinFET and FDSOI processes alongside simulation firm Gold Standard Simulations Ltd. Gold Standard Simulations was recently acquired by Synopsys www.sure-core.com
