CMP Technology Announces Embedded Systems Conference Silicon Valley Disruption Zone Participants

New Venue Makes West Coast Debut at the World's Largest Embedded Event and Technical Conference

Forum Showcases Innovative Startups That Speed Electronics Design and Development and Improve Digital Signal and Memory Performance

Mar 29, 2007

CMP Technology's Electronics Group today announced the seven companies participating in the Disruption Zone, a forum for electronics companies to showcase their latest innovations in technology. Making its West Coast debut at Embedded Systems Conference Silicon Valley ( at the McEnery Convention Center in San Jose, California, April 1-5, 2007, the Disruption Zone will feature start-ups seeking to forever change the embedded systems industry.

"The Disruption Zone is the ideal forum for Encirq to gain visibility with investors and key industry thought leaders," commented Jan Liband, director of marketing for Encirq. "It also provides an excellent way for the largest gathering of the best and brightest brains in the engineering community to take note of breakthrough technologies."

The forum consists of a specially created exhibition area on the ESC Silicon Valley trade show floor, along with an exclusive, invitation-only breakfast for industry influencers -- venture capitalists, analysts and media. The companies participating in the first-ever ESC SV Disruption Zone include:

  -- eASIC Corporation ( has developed a breakthrough
     technology allowing electronic designers to significantly cut costs,
     shorten turnaround time and achieve high performance while using
     conventional design flow and standard manufacturing process.

  -- Encirq ( delivers DeviceSQL, a breakthrough
     software technology that radically simplifies and shortens application
     development while enabling engineers to optimize how data is processed
     and managed in their designs.

  -- Quickfilter Technologies ( has a family
     of mixed-signal integrated circuits (ICs) for signal conditioning and
     digital signal processing / filtering for sensor based applications
     including industrial control and monitoring, medical patient monitoring
     and diagnostic equipment, wireless sensor networks, and many more.

  -- Innovative Silicon ( develops and
     licenses innovative memory technology for SoC/MPU applications.

  -- TimeSys ( empowers "roll-your-own" developers to
     rapidly and efficiently create their own commercial-grade custom Linux
     platform. The continuously updated components, information and systems
     offered through LinuxLink subscriptions are aggregated from the open
     source community, semiconductor manufacturers

  -- Sidense ( designs and develops the future of
     field-programmable, high density and secure, non-volatile memories
     using deep sub-micron Logic CMOS technologies.

  -- StackableUSB ( maintains the point-to-point
     connections and star topology required by USB and at the same time
     allows the connections to be routed up the stack to the next peripheral
     in line. The result is a rugged, industrial system using USB protocol.

"The Disruption Zone is unlike any other industry event, since it only focuses on truly revolutionary technologies," said David Blaza, publisher of Embedded System Design. "We look forward to hosting this innovative set of companies, and look forward to continued achievements from them in the future."
