Ixana has been named to EE Times' Silicon 100: Startups Worth Watching in 2023..
The Silicon 100 is a prestigious annual list of the most innovative and promising electronics and semiconductor startups in the world. The list is compiled by EE Times, a leading technology publication, and is based on a variety of factors, including the company's technology, market potential, and team.
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.
Wi-R has a wide range of potential applications, including:
- All-day wearable smartglasses
- Ultra-long-battery-life health wearables
- Secure, low-latency communication between headsets, peripherals, and controllers
- Body-controlled interfaces for gaming and entertainment
Ixana is currently in the process of commercializing its Wi-R technology. The company is working with a variety of smartphone, wearable and XR headset partners to develop products that use Wi-R, and it expects the first products to be launched next year.
The inclusion of Ixana on the Silicon 100 is a significant achievement for the company. It is a recognition of the potential of Wi-R technology, and it is a sign that Ixana is on the right track to revolutionize the way we interact with the world around us.
