This is an exciting time for the microelectronics industry which will make the giant leap to 5G a reality - form its backbone - in turn enabling the IoT, the industrial revolution of the 21st century. Unprecedented volumes of data will connect every aspect of the modern life, of the future "connected person". We have the technology to make this happen. Our eyes are firmly focused on the future.
The move to higher-frequencies (mmMwave) and larger-bandwidths (1/5/10 GHz) will require low-power communications SoCs fully-integrated in silicon based technologies. There are numerous challenges to making this possible which we are facing head-on. We have an ever growing portfolio of silicon IP blocks for commercial CMOS and SiGe BiCMOS processes.
Multifractal Semiconductors was born in the mmWave research group led by Dr. T. Stander at the Carl and Emily Fuchs Institute of Microelectronics at the University of Pretoria. The research group is involved in developing mmWave on-chip devices such as antennas, ADCs, ASPs, filters, LNAs and PAs.
Multifractal Semiconductors has licensed the IP developed during research activities from the University of Pretoria on an exclusive basis and will commercialize it by licensing it out as silicon proven IP blocks to chipmakers.
Co-Founder & COO
Nish Singh is interested in the miniaturization of millimeter-wave front-end components such as resonators and filters in order to develop fully integrated SoCs for future high-bandwidth wireless communications systems. He has five years of business management experience with an industrial background in contracting, consulting and manufacturing.
Co-Founder & CTO
Piotr Osuch in interested in the synthesis of quasi-arbitrary group delay elements and the microelectronic implementation of these networks. He is also investigating the use of these networks in the construction of analogue signal processors (ASPs) promising speed improvements of 100-1000-fold over equivalent DSPs. He has multiple publications and patents in this field.
Multifractal Semiconductors is actively looking to partner with chipmakers, foundries, EDA software providers and measurement service providers. Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
