STMicroelectronics Joins the Silicon Catalyst Ecosystem

June 8, 2020 Perry Cohen

Silicon Catalyst and STMicroelectronics announced the two companies have become strategic and In-Kind Partners. Per the companies, the collaboration provides STMicroelectronics with early access to review and help select the early-stage silicon start-ups seeking to participate in the Silicon Catalyst Incubator.

MEMS sensors and actuators will be the initial focus of the collaboration.

Silicon Catalyst created an ecosystem that provides support to semiconductor hardware start-ups. The company said this includes tools and services from a network of In-Kind Partners (IKPs). Since the company’s inception, it has reviewed over 300 early-stage companies and has now admitted a total of 31 start-ups into the incubator.

The companies that have been accepted into the incubator either pay little or no cost for access to the IKP tools and services for two years.
