San Jose, Calif. – May 23, 2017 – Sonics, Inc., the world’s foremost supplier of on-chip network (NoC) and power management technologies and services, today announced that Vayyar Imaging (Tel Aviv, Israel) has licensed SonicsSX® and SonicsExpress™ for use in its 3D sensor chips. Vayyar’s powerful sensor technology (watch video) is revolutionizing breast cancer detection, robotics, smart-home, smart cities, automotive, smart electronic appliances and more. Its sensors see through skin and tissue to detect breast or other cancer masses, look through walls to detect structural foundations, and can track a person’s location and vital signs as they move through a smart home.
“Israel’s top technology innovators continue to adopt Sonics’ NoC technology as the interconnect fabric for their advanced chips and SoCs,” said Grant Pierce, CEO of Sonics. “Vayyar’s goal is to employ its highly sophisticated embedded chip and advanced imaging algorithms to help people worldwide improve their health, safety, and quality of life using mobile, low-cost, and safe 3D imaging sensors. We’re pleased to be an important part of the Vayyar solution.”
“Sonics is the global leader in NoC technology and we chose its products for their track record of success and support for our chip performance and low-power requirements,” said Raviv Malamed, CEO at Vayyar.
Launched in 2011, Vayyar Imaging’s technology is being used by Fortune 500 companies and is expanding into multiple industries. Designed to see through materials, objects and liquids, Vayyar’s exclusive sensors see through known barriers to deliver an unprecedented imaging experience. The sensors scan the object and create a 3D image of its content. In addition, Vayyar’s 3D image sensing capabilities enable it to detect motion, speed, and track multiple people in large areas. Vayyar’s technology is compact, mobile, and based on low power radio frequency transmissions, and will make imaging technology available anytime, anywhere, at your fingertips. The Israel-based company is privately held and backed by Walden Riverwood, Battery Ventures, Bessemer Venture Partners, Israel Cleantech Ventures (ICV), and Amiti Ventures.
