Ixana Named to EE Times' Silicon 100 for Wi-R Non-Radiative Body-Area-Network Technology

Ixana was selected for the Silicon 100 for its innovative Wi-R technology, a non-radiative communication technology, which confines fields around conductive surfaces, including humans to transmit data. Wi-R combines the security and performance of wired communication with the convenience of wireless. For example, Wi-R is 100x more energy-efficient than traditional wireless technologies like Bluetooth and Wi-Fi, making it ideal for wearable devices and other applications where battery life is a critical factor.

Billions of dollars have been invested in recent years to build AR headsets that are suitable for everyday use, user-friendly, and powerful at the same time. Unfortunately, no company has yet been able to build the all-day productivity companion capable of real-time AI with always-on camera. Technical challenges such as thermal budget and battery drain severely limit capabilities. Reports say overheating is one of the key reasons Apple hasn’t announced their mixed reality headsets yet. Meta CEO, Mark Zuckerberg, calls fitting a computer on the frame of AR glasses "one of the hardest technical challenges of the decade". Ixana's Wi-R chip solves this billion dollar problem.
