Toumaz has done work on operating transistors at below the process threshold voltage which provides advantages for low power in their WSN and body-worn medical type applications.

To @eewiz: In the good, old days of Internet bubble $30M valuation would be small...but in today's market that is not bad...having said that I don't know what their revenue is and projected earnings going forward...Kris

@ Kris 7.8m for 25% stake is not so great. Many web companies in series A fetches much more than that . If I am not wrong the wireless tech is the key USP of Toumaz healthcare products, which adds to the disappointment.

As far as I understand wireless technology that Toumaz has developed is much lower in power than many competing technologies (Bluetooth, ZigBee, etc)...perhaps we can get someone from Toumaz to comment? Kris

I am not sure what the niche is from Toumaz in the already crowded wireless communication IC space. The sensor network space including solutions for 802.15.6 has seen a healthy number of companies developing products. MP Divakar

$7.8 sounds like a great investment for relatively small firm, good for Toumaz! ...anyone knows their revenue? Kris

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST
As data rates begin to move beyond 25 Gbps channels, new problems arise. Getting to 50 Gbps channels might not be possible with the traditional NRZ (2-level) signaling. PAM4 lets data rates double with only a small increase in channel bandwidth by sending two bits per symbol. But, it brings new measurement and analysis problems. Signal integrity sage Ransom Stephens will explain how PAM4 differs from NRZ and what to expect in design, measurement, and signal analysis.
