Silicon Catalyst Announces Four Newly Admitted Companies to Semiconductor Incubator


Staff member
Silicon Valley, California, and London, England - June 7, 2023 - Silicon Catalyst, the world’s only incubator focused exclusively on accelerating semiconductor solutions, announces the admission of four companies into the semiconductor industry’s highly acclaimed program.

The newly admitted companies include:
- Cambridge Terahertz
Democratizing the Terahertz spectrum through CMOS phased array technology

- Liitto
Computing Solutions for the Clean Energy Era

- Veevx
Intelligent Memory Chiplets

- weeteq
The “tiny” embedded technology company

Silicon Catalyst has developed an unparalleled support ecosystem for its semiconductor start-ups, providing a strong network of Strategic Partners, technical & business advisors, and industry professionals who help companies to launch and scale in the market. In addition, the incubator’s In-Kind Partners provide privileged access to services, expertise, and intellectual property that can help commercialize their companies’ technological innovation.

“Our most recent applicant screening cycle was truly spectacular, with a record number of entrepreneurial teams from 14 countries looking to participate in our 24-month incubation program,” stated Paul Pickering, Managing Partner at Silicon Catalyst. “These four companies exemplify our mission to assist in building out the next generation of semiconductor-based solutions to address the significant market challenges and opportunities in the areas of communications, energy, IoT and embedded systems.”

Utilizing the Terahertz spectrum to save and improve lives on a global scale

Cambridge Terahertz was spun out of MIT in 2021 with the mission to bring Terahertz technology to the world. Our Terahertz CMOS phased array technology is setting orders-of-magnitude performance records, enabling low-cost and widely deployed Terahertz wireless systems, unlocking the benefits of this untapped frequency range. The list of impactful/lucrative markets for such a tech is extremely long but we are beginning with imaging, starting with the physical security and loss prevention markets. We're building a future where detection of weapons and contraband is ubiquitous and blends into the background.

Computing Solutions for the Clean Energy Era

Liitto builds hardware that transforms low-priced and wasted clean energy into a valuable computational resource. Our unique solution helps solar and wind power plants address the $11 billion annual problem of value deflation and curtailment. Simultaneously, we provide a path to decarbonize the fast-growing, energy-intensive fields of computation, ranging from Bitcoin Mining to AI Training.
