Video: Startup's founder describes 'black silicon' Product News 2/5/2009 Post a comment James Carey, co-founder of SiOnyx, talks about "black silicon," a material he developed that boasts more than 100 times the sensitivity of silicon, detects energy from the ultraviolet to the short-wave infrared bands, operates at a low voltage bias and, at less than 0.5 micron, is extremely thin.
In conjunction with unveiling of EE Times’ Silicon 60 list, journalist & Silicon 60 researcher Peter Clarke hosts a conversation on startups in the electronics industry. One of Silicon Valley's great contributions to the world has been the demonstration of how the application of entrepreneurship and venture capital to electronics and semiconductor hardware can create wealth with developments in semiconductors, displays, design automation, MEMS and across the breadth of hardware developments. But in recent years concerns have been raised that traditional venture capital has turned its back on hardware-related startups in favor of software and Internet applications and services. Panelists from incubators join Peter Clarke in debate.
