Boréas Named a Top Semiconductor Startup to Watch in EE Times Silicon 100
BROMONT, Québec, July 15, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Boréas Technologies today announced its selection in the EE Times Silicon 100, an annual list of emerging electronics and semiconductor startups to watch. Boréas was recognized for its low-power piezo haptic driver chip, the BOS1901, and for its CapDrive™ Technology, a patented, scalable high-voltage, low-power piezo platform that enables high-definition (HD) haptic effects for trackpads, wearables, smartphones and other resource-constrained devices that benefit from richer, more immersive touch user interfaces.
“For the past 21 years, the EE Times Silicon 100 has been the go-to guide to who’s who and what’s up among the most compelling semiconductor startups,” said Peter Clarke, the veteran technology and business journalist who curates the EE Times Silicon 100. “As a pioneer in piezoelectric-based touch user interface technologies—which are set to displace the static, mechanical buttons of the past—Boréas has earned its place among the 2021 version of the EE Times Silicon 100.”
“Rich touch user interfaces give consumers an emotional attachment to their devices, but the existing component technologies behind them often come up short—either delivering force sensing without gesture detection or gesture without localized sensory feedback,” said Simon Chaput, founder and CEO, Boréas Technologies. “As the only company with piezo technologies that produce the reassuring physical sensations of haptic feedback for small form-factor devices and that enabe advanced gesture detection with localized haptics, Boréas is uniquely positioned to help manufacturers gain competitive advantage through compelling touch experiences.
“It’s a great honor to have been chosen for the EE Times Silicon 100,” added Chaput. “We’re delighted by the acknowledgement and will forge ahead to make good on the promise of our interface technologies.”
