Curious Inventions Promise Faster, More Efficient IoT Product Design

According the company InventionShare, the Circuit Seed family of inventions will allow all manufacturers of electronics to develop IoT devices more quickly and efficiently and at a much lower cost. Circuit Seed is a family of building block circuit designs for processing analog signals that includes a new CMOS Field Effect Transistor (CiFET) with unique properties. These designs all use 100% digital workflow components overcoming many of restrictions of traditional analog circuits.

In addition, the size and power requirements of the devices will be lower, providing significant opportunities for electronics manufacturers to further capitalize on the emerging IoT market. InventionShare’s CEO Greg Waite claims “Circuit Seed is a game changer. Instead of designing low power analog circuits that barely work and have limited range, you could be using Circuit Seed, a simpler design with fewer limitations, better performance, higher stability, and greater dynamic range. It will also reduce the time and cost to design, test, manufacture and support low power devices.”

Circuit Seed circuits will operate down to less than 0.1V using a 100% digital process. The circuit designs are simpler and do not require matched pairs or current mirrors and will function on 40-nm or smaller integrated circuits. The overall circuits are also insensitive to parametric changes making precision designs without precision parts a reality. These circuits also run at logic speed and are self-biasing. They generally work over a large frequency range, with high sensitivity and accuracy. For more info, visit
